SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- New census data shows more people in Utah are being forced to go without health insurance.

Nearly 17.5 percent of Utah's population last year had no health insurance, up nearly a full percentage point from the year before.

Health advocates say Utah is moving in the wrong direction. They want state legislators to strengthen government health programs for low-income people and children.
