Uninsured Rate and Living Arrangement
How does the uninsured rate vary by Americans’ living arrangements?
Households are the primary living arrangement for the American population. Families are a type of household, in which residents who are related to one another. Nonfamily households include roommates living together and single-person households.
A small number of people live in group quarters, which are not households. Military and institutional group quarters residents are not included in this data. Other types of group quarters residents, such as students living in dormitories, are included in the "nonfamily households and other living arrangements" value.
