Source: The percentage of each state’s population enrolled in Medicaid or CHIP was calculated by dividing Medicaid and CHIP enrollment by estimates of each state’s population. Medicaid & CHIP enrollment data come from  Updated July 2020 Applications, Eligibility, and Enrollment Data. Estimates of each state’s population come from U.S. Census Bureau. Estimates of the Total Resident Population and Resident Population for the Nation, States, Counties, and Puerto Rico (Vintage 2020 population estimate).
