New data from the Current Population Survey

Message from the State Data Center:

The Current Population Survey (CPS) will release data on poverty, median household income, and health insurance coverage on Thursday, September 16, at 10am. Visit the US Census Bureau home page at http://www.census.gov and look for an icon in the upper left corner of the page. You will be able to access the data and media kit to go with the data.

CPS is a small sample survey that produces annual data for state comparisons. This is NOT the American Community Survey (ACS) release. The ACS income and poverty release is scheduled for September 28 and will include data for sub-state areas with populations over 65,000. Additional ACS data for areas with populations below 65,000 will follow later this year.
