alth services." Dr. Clancy added that some of the low-income uninsured children likely qualify for public coverage, but their parents may not be aware of their eligibility.

The researchers also found that:

-- Children living with an insured single parent had two times the odds of

being uninsured at any point during the year as children living with two

married people of whom at least one was insured and more than twice the

odds of having a coverage gap lasting 6 months or more.

-- Children with at least one parent who did not complete high school were

44 percent more likely than children whose parent or parents were high

school graduates to be uninsured at any point during the year, and they

had 87 percent greater odds of being uninsured for more than 6 months.

-- Hispanic children had a 65 percent higher probability than non-Hispanic,

white children of being uninsured at some point during the year with an

insured parent and an 80 percent greater chance of being uninsured for

more than 6 months.

-- Children whose parents had Medicaid or other public insurance were 54

percent less likely to be uninsured at any point during the year than

children with privately insured parents and 59 percent less likely to be

uninsured for more than 6 months.

-- Children living in the South and those in the West had 70 percent and 52

percent greater odds, respectively, of being uninsured at some point

during a year with a parent covered all year, compared to children

living in the Northeast. They also had an 83 percent and 49 percent

greater likelihood, respectively, of being uninsured for more than 6

months.
