Hosted by the State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC), an upcoming webinar on September 29th will invite experts from the United States Census Bureau to present annual fall release estimates from the 2021 American Community Survey (ACS) and the Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplement (CPS ASEC). After the 2020 ACS data were released on an experimental-only basis due to COVID-19-related disruptions, we are looking forward to a discussion of the return of the full release of health insurance coverage data at both the national and the state level, as well as by coverage type, from the past year.
