Census Survey Revisions Mask Health Law Effects
By ROBERT PEARAPRIL 15, 2014

WASHINGTON — The Census Bureau, the authoritative source of health insurance data for more than three decades, is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said.

The changes are intended to improve the accuracy of the survey, being conducted this month in interviews with tens of thousands of households around the country. But the new questions are so different that the findings will not be comparable, the officials said.

An internal Census Bureau document said that the new questionnaire included a “total revision to health insurance questions” and, in a test last year, produced lower estimates of the uninsured. Thus, officials said, it will be difficult to say how much of any change is attributable to the Affordable Care Act and how much to the use of a new survey instrument.

The timing is unfortunate. But, according to the article, these changes have been in the works for 10 years and "...the decision to make fundamental changes in the survey was driven by technical experts at the Census Bureau, and members of Congress have not focused on it or suggested political motives." Still, it looks bad.

That would be fine except for the fact that they tried a test-run last year and found it gave a desired outcome.

With all these numbers the White House is throwing around about Commie Care, it's met with great suspicion since it's difficult to be accurate. I would think that if they were so confident about their numbers, they would prefer the same Census questions that they used to determine the amount of uninsured Americans the last three decades.

<quoted text>Ha haaaaa! OK, I had that one coming. Hey, no sh1t on that e-smoke thing. I can't say enough good things about it. I knew the first day it arrived that I was done smoking. It totally and successfully replaced cigarettes for me and I have smoked for a very long time. The first few brands my wife and I tried were inconsistent and difficult to tell when they were going to run out. With the tank system, you can see how much juice is in them and the things are super easy to fill. They easily pay for themselves in the first month. The two juices I like are Prime and Tribeca. They offer two battery sizes with the starter kit for the same price. Get the bigger battery. I rotate mine out every day and have never had a battery die on me. I would start with the 18 ml of nicotine to start out. I can tell you almost 100% that you will be pleasantly surprised if you invest in what I have described. It isn't just a quit smoking gimmick to my wife and I. We actually enjoy it. The main reason I keep nagging you about them is the unbelievable difference it has made in my health. I have been very specific on the brand because it will save you a lot of trial and error. Try it and if it doesn't work for you, we can blame Joe Biden and Sarah Palin for it.
LOL! Too funny! Joe Biden very possibly could be at fault somehow?

epic failure is robust economy to you.

how much you wanna bet I spent more on tips than you earned during same time period.

I spent more on margaritas during that time period than you earned.

You don't even want to know what was spent on clothing, or electronics, or gifts.

how much you wanna bet nobody but you trolls is surprised I spent more in 17 days than you earn in 365.

it does, and also time it takes.

in 2 weeks the snow melted and reviled land, so the return has less time over nothing but ice than prior. That horrific climate change called spring.

I knew you would bite like trash fish at a lake, so I baited you.

Leaving NY and flying northwest over the pole is the way to China. NY when leaving had northern part of state snow covered also.

When landing in China I had to change planes for an additional 5 hour flight.

Missed seeing santa. I did see ice that idiots like you think has melted.

Someone farted on return flight and melted the snow to just what is called the circle. The plane seat had gps tracker and was quite descriptive.

YES you are too ugly for prostitution in Thailand also.
