1 in 12 ND children uninsured
Despite officials saying Wednesday that the percentage of uninsured children in North Dakota is less than the national average, the actual number -- 12,000 children -- is still big.
"Nationally, it is about 9.9 percent, so we are below national averages, which is obviously great," said Richard Rathge, the North Dakota State Data Center director at North Dakota State University. "Still, you are talking about a relatively large number of kids, even though it is about 8 percent."
