Welcome to SHADAC's Data Center, a web-based table generator tool allowing users to customize tables and graphs of health insurance coverage estimates within a pre-defined set of parameters. The Data Center is a user-friendly and easily accessible way to get health insurance coverage estimates from the Current Population Survey's Annual Social and Economic Supplement (CPS) and the American Community Survey (ACS).
The Data Center now has calendar year 2011 estimates for the ACS, CPS and SHADAC-Enhanced CPS. The 2010 estimates for CPS and SHADAC-Enhanced CPS have also been revised to incorporate the new 2010 Census-based weights released by the Census Bureau. The SHADAC-Enhanced CPS estimates for 2000-2009 have been revised to smooth to the 2010 Census-based weights for a consistent time series between the decades.
A health insurance unit (HIU) definition of family is used for the Data Center calculations. The SHADAC Brief 27, "Defining Family for Studies of Health Insurance Coverage," describes the HIU.
SHADAC hosted a webinar on April 10, 2012 to discuss the HIU and to provide a walkthrough of navigating the Data Center. View the webinar archive and presentation slides.
