Los Angeles Times

New U.S. Census figures paint a grim picture of California when it comes to health insurance: Nearly one in five residents lacked coverage on average during the last three years, one of the highest rates in the nation.

On average from 2008 to 2010, 18.9% of Californians had no insurance, the census reported. That equates to nearly 7 million people.
