On September 10th, the Census Bureau will release national poverty and income data, as well as nationwide and state health insurance data. Other state and local findings will be out on September 26th and October 17th. 

CHN’s annual preview is especially important this year: First, Jared Bernstein will share his incisive predictions about what the data will show (More uninsured after years of better news?  More progress in reducing poverty or stubbornly high numbers?). Second, there are changes both in the Census Bureau’s website and the timing of releases that we will help you navigate. Whether you plan to comment on September 10th or use the data over time, we will give you the tools you need.


  • Jared Bernstein: Senior Fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, famously and clearly analyzes economic trends both as an on-air commentator for CNBC and MSNBC, as well as regularly contributing to the Washington Post’s PostEverything blog and elsewhere. He hosts the respected blog On the Economy (jaredbernsteinblog.com). Jared will give you the forecast, telling you what to watch for, and what it means.
  • Deborah Weinstein: Executive Director of the Coalition on Human Needs, provides practical information about how to get and use the information you need (local, state, and national), and shows how to navigate this year’s Census website and timing changes.
  • Our Moderator is Ellen Teller, Director of Government Relations at the Food Research & Action Center.
