(Pittsburgh) -- The latest government figures show that more than 81,000 Pennsylvanians have enrolled under the federal health care law, a sharp increase from the 11,800 who were signed up at the end of November.

The Obama administration has released statistical details about the more than two million Americans who enrolled for government-subsidized private insurance by the end of December.

In Pennsylvania, 56 percent of the people who enrolled were women and 44 percent men. The breakdown by age showed that 39 percent of the people were between 55 and 64 years old, and 24 percent were between 18 and 34.

The government said 76 percent of the people who signed up in Pennsylvania received financial assistance and 24 percent didn't.
