23 Summary Most residents have health insurance, but some still use the ER for their primary source of care. These data suggest that even with health insurance coverage, access to medical care can be a problem for county residents. San Joaquin County has a higher percentage of asthma for youth (ages 1-17) and adults than the state. San Joaquin County and California have similar percentages of adult diabetes, but both are far higher than the Healthy People 2010 goal of 2.5%. Finally, too many local children and adults are overweight or obese, putting them at risk for further health related complications (e.g. diabetes).
