This page provides an archive of SHADAC's September 30, 2010 webinar to discuss the 2009 health insurance coverage estimates from the American Community Survey (ACS) and Current Population Survey (CPS). This webinar featured experts from the U.S. Census Bureau who reviewed the estimates, discussed the comparison between the ACS and CPS and responded to questions from the audience. We'd like to extend a special thanks to the Census Bureau for participating in this webinar.
