A new interactive map looks at what has happened since the last significant reform effort ended in 1994 without any comprehensive congressional action. The map shows that over the last 15 years, nearly every state has seen increased numbers of uninsured residents, greater costs for workers while their incomes are flat, and significant erosion of private coverage. The map accompanies the report At the Brink: Trends in America's Uninsured 1994-2007 and is based on data prepared by the State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC) at the University of Minnesota. Researchers averaged data from the U.S. Census Bureau from 1994-1996 and compared it with average figures from 2006-2007.
