Tarrant County's uninsured rise in 2009, but so does number of insured, Census says

Tarrant County saw a rise in the number of people uninsured for health coverage last year, but it also saw a smaller increase in the number of insured people, as the population grew, today's Census data shows.

The number of people without health insurance rose to 409,205 from 375,886 in 2008. The number of insured people rose to 1,363,674 from 1,357,025, the Census data said.

In 2009, the number of people with private health coverage was 1.1 million. The number with public coverage, such as Medicare, Medicaid, or CHIP, was 378,902. The number of children younger than 18 years was 79,503.
