It's a month old, but I'd missed it previously:

"A new U.S. Census Bureau study reports that 785,000 Cook County residents do not have health insurance. That's 17 percent of the overall population. Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin (D) actually suspects the figure, based off a 2005 census report, is low."

Illinois Progress has some hopeful news, though.
