Data from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) show that among persons in the United States earning between $10 and $15 per hour, the likelihood of being uninsured increased from 10.6% in 1996 to 12.9% in 2000. The data come from the AHRQ's Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (available online at http://www.ahrq.gov).
