Jeff Bontrager, a senior researcher at the
non-partisan Colorado Health Institute has analysed the latest U.S. Census numbers. He says Colorado is going against the national trend.
Between 2008 and 2009 unemployment went up 3% in Colorado, but the number of uninsured didn’t budge. It stayed at right around 15% of the state’s population. He explains why to Colorado Public Radio Health Reporter Eric Whitney.
