It’s not like every state has an equal problem. According to the Temple Telegram, only 8.3 percent of residents in Hawaii and Massachusetts were uninsured between 2005 and 2007.
For information on each county, check out Texas Medical Association’s Table of Uninsured Rates for all Texas Counties here. It’s a little outdated, but it gives a good idea of just how bad it is for Texas’ families.
