As noted in the companion issue brief to this analysis, Minnesota's uninsurance rate climbed significantly in 2017, undoing some of the success of the coverage expansion under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) through 2015. This issue brief uses data from the 2017 Minnesota Health Access Survey (MNHA) to provide additional context on uninsurance in Minnesota by: (1) Illustrating the persistent disparities in the rates of uninsurance across population groups; and (2) Describing Minnesota's uninsured population along key demographic characteristics, including their connection to the labor market. The MNHA is a biennial telephone survey of the state population that is conducted in partnership between the Minnesota Department of Health and the University of Minnesota, School of Public Health State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC).
