The Census Bureau's Current Population Survey (CPS) has long served as the most widely-cited source of statistics on the nation's uninsured. But over time, the CPS has undergone several methodological changes that create some inconsistency in the time series of uninsured date. This report presents the Acturarial Research Corporation's (ARC) adjustments to the CPS to create a consistent time series.
