At the DNC last week, it was being said that the number of uninsureds had increased by 3 million.

Not true, according to data recently released by the Commerce Dept.

The number of insured people increased by 2.3 million — to almost 300 million total insureds.

The number of uninsureds dropped by about 1.3 million — to 45.657 million.

Of the 45.657 million uninsureds:

  • Almost 10 millions are classified as “not a citizen”;
  • Over 9 million earn more than $75,000 annually;
  • Over 15 million earn more than $50,000 annually;
  • Almost 10 million are classified as “did not work”

Note: categories are not mutually exclusive, so there is some double-counting.
