Mark Perry:

According to this Census Bureau report “Income, Poverty, and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States: 2007” (most recent data available), there were 45.6 million uninsured Americans in 2007. The chart above shows the household income levels of those 45.6 million uninsured Americans.

There are 9.1 million uninsured Americans living in households making $75,000 per year or more, and this represents about 20% of the total number of uninsured. There are 8.5 million Americans without health insurance in households making between $50,000 and $75,000, representing 31.8% of the uninsured. With those two groups combined, 38.6% of Americans without health insurance (17.6 million people) lived in households with $50,000 or more of household income in 2007.
