GLASGOW — According to a survey done by The Small Area Health Insurance Estimates, a part of the Census Bureau, Adair County, Monroe County and Edmonson County are in the top 10 counties that have the most uninsured residents in Kentucky; and Metcalfe County, Clinton County and Cumberland County have more than a 20 percent rate of uninsured residents. These statistics are from the latest year available, which is 2011.
