About 9 percent of the U.S. population were uninsured in the first six months of 2017, according to new numbers released Friday. 

{mosads}From January to July of this year, 28.8 million people were uninsured, according to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS.) 

That’s a small change from the 28.6 million who lacked insurance last year. 

In 2010, before ObamaCare became the law of the land, 48.6 million were uninsured. That was about 16 percent of the population, the study noted. 

The percentage of those without insurance has decreased slightly from 2013 through the first six months of 2017.
