CBPP Press Call: Examining the New Census Data on Poverty, Health Insurance Coverage, and Income

The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities will hold a conference call briefing for journalists Tuesday, September 12, at 1:30 p.m. (ET) to examine the new Census Bureau data for 2016 on poverty, health insurance coverage, income, and income inequality trends that will be released at 10 a.m. that morning.


Robert Greenstein, President of CBPP
Jared Bernstein, Senior Fellow, CBPP

The briefing will discuss:

  • Do the new data show gains in terms of poverty, median income, and income inequality?  What are the implications for policymakers?
  • What do the Census data on health insurance rates tell us about coverage trends and the impact of the Affordable Care Act?
  • What do the new data indicate about the role of the safety net and the state of the economy in addressing poverty?

After opening remarks, the panelists and other Center experts will take questions.
