*SHCN=Children with Special Health Care Needs

**Asked for children who either are currently or were at some point in the past 12 months not covered by health insurance.

^Use caution in interpreting percentages with a numerator of less than 20. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
