Assignment 6 – Elena DeLuccia

With the failure of Republicans to pass a new healthcare plan, I thought it would be interesting to see how Obamacare has helped the population with insurance overall. I took the population census’ from 2011-2015 and then took the average of those populations (they were listed per month) and compared them with the percentage of uninsured Americans to get a final number for the total uninsured.

I think this chart shows the significant amount that the number of uninsured Americans has dropped and how much Obamacare has helped to get Americans insured.
