There are two pie charts:  Pie chart on the left is labeled Coverage Gap, and the breakdown includes American Indian or Alaska Native (1%), Asian or Pacific Islander (1%), Other (2%), Latino (28%), Black (28%), White (40%).  Pie chart on the right is labeled All Non Elderly Adults and includes White (59%), Black (19%), Latino (17%), Asian or Pacific Islander (3%), Other (2%).
