LITTLE ROCK — A new study shows that the percentage of children without health insurance in Arkansas declined from 2008 to 2012.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation report shows that the percentage of kids who were uninsured in the state dropped from 8.8 percent in 2008 to 5.9 percent in 2012, the most recent year that data was available.

Researchers say that nationwide, the percentage of uninsured children declined from 9.7 percent to about 7.5 percent during the same time period.

In Arkansas, the report also found that children in low-income families had significant gains in insurance coverage and that minority children made the greatest gains in insurance coverage, among other findings.

This will continue down as more people get insurance through the ACA.
