CPS Estimates

The CPS health insurance estimates are available through summary tabulations, downloads of microdata, and restricted-use files.  This page describes summary tabulations, which are estimates available through published tables.

Advantages of summary tabulations:

  • No analytic software required.
  • Table packages are usually repeated from year to year, making them easy to find and use.
Disadvantages of summary tabulations:
  • Little/no flexibility to develop an answer to your research question.  Your research may require analyzing microdata, for which we have information on our Access Microdata page.
