Where America's Uninsured Live
The New York Times has released a Google Maps based visualization of the insured and uninsured in America. The Mapping Uninsured Americans uses census data released on December 17th to show where the uninsured live.
Users can mouse-over any county on the map to view the percentage of the population without insurance and the percentages with public and private insurance. If you zoom in on the map you can view the data for each census tract.
A number of quick links beneath the map provide the user with the option to instantly zoom to a number of major US cities.
