See below for an event recording, slides, transcript, and related resources.
This webinar gives an overview of the 2016 health insurance coverage estimates from two key, large-scale federal data sources: The American Community Survey (ACS) and the Current Population Survey (CPS).
Data from these annual surveys paint a picture of coverage at the national and state level under three years of ACA implementation while also providing historical trend information for context.
This webinar examines the new estimates with technical insight from experts at the U.S. Census Bureau, which administers both the ACS and CPS, and from SHADAC researchers.
Viewers will learn about:
- The new 2016 national and state coverage estimates
- When to use which estimates from which survey
- How to access the estimates via Census reports and American FactFinder
- How to access state-level estimates from the ACS using SHADAC tables
SHADAC researchers and Census experts also answer questions from attendees after the presentation.
