Women's Access to Health Insurance: Excerpts
by Young-Hee Yoon, Heidi Hartmann, Ph.D., Lois Shaw, Ph.D., Roberta Spalter-Roth, Ph.D., Stephanie Aaronson, Ph.D. (June 1994)

Overall, women are more likely than men to have insurance coverage. Our findings show that in 1990, 15 percent of women between the ages of 18 and 64, or 12 million women, are uninsured compared to 19 percent, or 14 million men. Women are less likely to have insurance through their own employers (direct employer-based insurance) than are men.
