This thematic map uses a color theme to illustrate the uninsured portion of the population of each county. Counties
shown with a darker color have a higher uninsured population. This map also uses a chart theme
to illustrate the type of insurance coverage. The size of the pie chart
indicates the number of people
in the county, and the pie pieces show the percentage of the population that has each type of insurance.
