California professions that have the most workers without health insurance, 2008 Above chart includes only full-time workers and professions with more than 3,000 California workers.
Notes: The source of these numbers is the U.S. Census Bureau's 2008 American Community Survey Public Use Microdata Sample. Since data is based on sampling, it's at its most reliable when there are a large number of workers in a chosen field. In other words, data shown for professions with very few workers, say, for instance, Radiation Therapists, should be taken with a grain of salt.
