Source: Families USA, Publication No. 07-108, September 2007

From the press release:
Approximately 89.6 million Americans–more than one out of three people (34.7 percent) under 65 years of age–were uninsured at some point of time during 2006-2007, according to a report released today by the health consumer organization Families USA.

The report, based mainly on Census Bureau data, showed that most of these uninsured individuals lacked coverage for lengthy periods of time: nearly two-thirds (63.9 percent) were uninsured for six months or more; and more than half (50.2 percent) were uninsured for nine months or more.
