In this edition of Brookings Data Now: about half of Americans already have private health insurance; Debt-to-GDP ratio growing; lack of social mobility; and Taiwan's trade value.
About half of all Americans are already insured, and don't necessarily have to purchase health insurance through the new exchanges set up under the Affordable Care act.
The historical average is about 36 percent.
Six percent of bottom-income quintile children make it into the top quintile. For top quintile children, 39 percent stay in the top fifth, and 9 percent end up in the bottom.
Taiwan's trade is 74 percent of its GDP. It is the world's 19th largest trader, but only the 28th largest economy in the world.
