Comparing State Uninsurance Estimates: SHADAC-Enhanced CPS and CPS
SHADAC has developed and made available a Current Population Survey (CPS) data series (the "SHADAC-Enhanced CPS") that makes several adjustments to the CPS estimates to account for survey changes over time. This brief compares the CPS estimates as published by the Census Bureau to the SHADAC-Enhanced CPS estimates over time and across states for 2007-08.
