This report from the Young Invincibles and DEMOS found that the rate of full-time workers between 18 and 24 years old with employer-sponsored insurance dropped 12.8 percent over the past decade, while dropping 8.5 percent for workers ages 25 to 34. Further, the percent of individuals aged 18-34 without insurance in 2009 was more than double the share of older adults without insurance.
