>>THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. TODAY, WE RELEASING THREE
REPORTS. INCOME AND POVERTY IN THE UNITED
STATES 2018, HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE IN THE UNITED STATES
2018, AND THE SUPPLEMENTAL POVERTY MEASURE 2018 THE INCOME
FOR THE REPORT ARE BASED ON DATA FROM THE CURRENT POPULATION SUR
SUR’S ANNUAL, SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC SUPPLEMENT.
THE CURRENT POPULATION SURVEY IS THE LONGEST RUNNING SURVEY
CONDUCTED BY THE CENSUS BUREAU AND IS THE OFFICIAL SOURCE OF
THE NATIONAL POVERTY ESTIMATE. THE ESTIMATES ARE CALCULATED IN
ACCORDANCE WITH THE OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET STATISTIC
STATISTICAL POLICY DIRECTIVES OR TEAM. THE AMERICAN COMMUNITY SURVEY IS
AN O GOING SURVEY THAT HAS A MUCH LARGER SIMPLE SIZE CEZANNE,
MAKE TOGETHER RECOMMENDED SOURCE OF HEALTH INSURANCE STATISTICS
FOR SMALLER POPULATIONS AND LEVELS OF GEOGRAPHY THIS YEAR
MARKS THE CULMINATION OF A MULTI YEAR EFFORT TO IMPROVE HOW WE
COLLECT AND MEASURE INCOME, POVERTY AND HEALTH INSURANCE IN
THE CURRENT POPULATION SURVEY THERE’S A TWO-STEP PROCESS,
BEGINNING FIRST WITH QUESTIONNAIRE DESIGN CHANGES
INCORPORATED OVER 2014 TO 2016. THIS WAS FOLLOWED BY MORE RECENT
CHANGES TO THE DATA PROCESSING SYSTEM.
WHILE IMPROVEMENTS MADE TO DATA COLLECTIONS OF COURSE REFLECTIVE
IN THE ESTIMATES FOR YEARS 2013 TO 2017, THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR
ESTIMATES WILL REFLECT THE UP UPDATED PROCESSING SYSTEM.
THE NEW DATA PROCESSING SYSTEM IMPROVES HOW THE CENSUS BUREAU
EDITS, AND SCIENCE RELATIONSHIP. IT ALSO PROVIDES DETAILS ON
HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE, AND TYPE OF COVERAGE OVER THE YEAR.
AFTER PRESENTED TODAY FOR 2017 AND 2018 REFLECT THIS UPDATED
PROCESSING SYSTEM. THE 2017 ESTIMATES MAY BE
DIFFERENT FROM THOSE PUBLISHED LAST YEAR, WHICH WERE USED USING
THE LEGACY PROCESSING SYSTEM. IN 2019, THE CENSUS BUREAU
PROCESSED THESE CHANGES ON POVERTY AND INCOME, POVERTY AND
HEALTH INSURANCE ESTIMATES FOR 2016 AND 2017 IN WORKING PAPERS,
PRESENTATIONS AND OTHER MATERIALS.
PLEASE VISIT THE CPS ASEC RE
REDESIGN WEBSITE FOR MORE DI DIDETSA TAILS.
DETAIL TO THE CHARGE CHANGES OF THE SURVEY AND A PROCESSING
SYSTEM. LAST WEEK’S WEBINAR CAN BE FOUND
ON THE SECOND LINK ON THE SCREEN SCREEN.
ALL FINDINGS AND COMPARISONS WE ARE PRESENTING TODAY, WERE
PRODUCED USING OUR UPDATED PROCESSING SYSTEM.
NOW, LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT MAIN FINDINGS.
MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME WAS $63,223 IN 2018.
NOT STATISTICALLY DIFFERENT FROM THE 2017 MEDIAN, FAMILIARING
THREE CONSECUTIVE YEARS OF ANNUAL INCREASES.
THE OFFICIAL POVERTY RATE IN 2018 WAS 11.8 PERCENT, DOWN FROM
2019. IN 2018, THERE WAS 31.8 MILLION
PEOPLE IN PROFIT, A DECREASE OF 4.3 MILLION PEOPLE.
THE SUPPLEMENTAL POVERTY MEASURE
IN 2018 WAS 13.1 PERCENT, NOT STATISTICALLY DIFFERENT FROM THE
2017SPM ARREST 13.0 PERCENT. THE FOR THEAGE OF PEOPLE WITHOUT
HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR THE ENTIRE CALENDAR YEAR WAS 8.5
PERCENT. A 0.5 PERCENTAGE POINT INCREASE
FROM 2017. IN 2018, 27.5 MILLION PEOPLE DID
NOT HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE, AN INCREASE OF
1.9 MILLION PEOPLE. NOW, LET’S TURN TO OUR SUBJECT
MATTER EXPERTS FOR A CLOSER LOOK AT FINDINGS.
STARTING WITH INCOME AND POVERTY POVERTY.
AND AS A REMINDER, IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THESE PRESENTATIONINGS
PRESENTATIONINGS, WE’LL TAKE YOUR QUESTIONS.>>INCOMING FOR THE STATISTICS
GAUGE HEALTH AT U.S. ECONOMY WERE ABLE TO SEE NATIONAL TRENDS
AND COMPARITY ECONOMIC WELL-BEING OF DIFFERENT GROUPS
SUCH AS WOMEN VERSUS MEN, CHILDREN VERSUS PEOPLE AGE 65
AND OLDER AND URBAN VERSUS RURAL RESIDENTS.
INCOME IS A MONEY CASH RESOURCES COMING INTO A HOUSELED HOUSEHOLD
, INCLUDING WAGES AND EARNINGS
FROM WORK, AS WELL AS SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS.
RETIREMENT INCOME, INTEREST DIVIDENDS AND PUBLIC ASSISTANCE.
IT DOES NOT ACCOUNT FOR TAXES PAID, MEDICARE, MEDI-CAL. AND
WE TALK ABOUT TRENDS IN MEDIAN. THE MEDIAN IS THE VALUE THAT
DIVIDES THE INCOME DISTRIBUTION IN HOUSE.
SO HALF OF OUR HOUSEHOLD HAS ABOVE BOOF THE MEDIAN.
HALF, BELOW. POVERTY IS A MEASURE OF FAMILY
THAT IS LIVE BE LOCATE POVERTY THRESHOLD, MEANING THEY DON’T
HAVE ADEQUATE RESOURCES TO MEET BASIC NEEDS.
IN 2018, A FAMILY WITH TWO ADULT ADULTS AND TWO CHILDREN WAS
CONSIDERED IN POVERTY. IF THEIR INCOME WAS BELOW $25,465.
POVERTY RATES HELP DEVELOP POLICY AND TARGETED BENEFITS.
THE NEXT POVERTY REPORT IS BASED ON DATA FROM THE CURRENT
POPULATION SURVEYS,. LET ME BEGIN BY SUMMARIZING THE
FINDINGS MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME WAS $63,200 IN 2018.
NOT STATISTICALLY DIFFERENT FROM THE 2017 MEDIAN.
THE 2018 MEDIAN EARNINGS OF MEN AND WOMEN WHO WORKED FULL TIME
YEAR ROUND … THE NUMBER OF FULL TIME WORKERS, YEAR ROUND,
INCREASED BY 3.3 MILLION. THE NUMBER OF MEN AND WOMEN FULL
TIME YEAR ROUND WORKERS INCREASE BY THE ABOUT 700,000 AND
1.6 MILLION RESPECTIVELY. LET ME START BY GIVING DETAIL
ABOUT THE CHANGES WE ENGLISH HOUSEHOLD MEDIAN INCOME: FROM
197 TO 2018 IN RURAL AND — RECESSIONS, AS DEFINED BY THE
NATIONAL BUREAU ECONOMIC RESEARCH ARE DEPICTED IN THIS
IN ALL TIME SERIES CHART IN SHADING.
$63,200 MEDIAN INCOME IN 2018. NOT STATISTICALLY DIFFERENT FROM
THE 2017 MID MEADIAN. FOLLOWING THREE CONSECUTIVE
YEARS OF ANNUAL INCREASES. AT FIRST GLANCE APPEARS, MEDIAN
INCOME WAS HIGHER PRIOR TO 2017. SURPASSING THE MEDIAN INCOME
FROM 2007. HOWEVER, MAKING COMPARISONS OVER
TIME REQUIRES CAUTION SINCE THESE ESTIMATES REFLECT CHANGE
IMPLEMENT TO THE SURSAY, INCLUDING THE REDESIGN OF THE
INCOME QUESTIONNAIRE FOR DATA YEAR 2013 AND AN UPICATE TO OUR
PROCESSING SYSTEM THIS YEAR. AS A RESULT, SOME OF THE
APPARENT DIFFERENCES OVER TIME, COULD BE DUE TO THESE RECENT IM
IMPROVEMENT TO THE DATA COLLECTION.
TO UNDERSTAND THE IMPACT OF THESE CHANGES, WE HAVE RELEASED
INCOME ESTIMATES FOR 2013 AND 2017 WITH AND WITHOUT THE
IMPROVEMENTS. OUR ANALYSIS OF THE INCOME RE
RERECIPIENT DESIGN QUESTIONS, FOUND, THEY INCREASE ESTIMATES
OF THE MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME BY ABOUT 3-POINT TWO PERCENT.
THE UPDATED PROCESSING SYSTEM DID NOT HAVE A STATISTIC AIL
SIGNIFICANT EFFECT ON MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME IN 2017.
THE ESTIMATES FROM 2017 AND 2018 PRESENTED TODAY REFLECT BOTH
IMPROVEMENTS TO THE DATA ONE METHOD FOR ADJUSTING PRE-2017
ESTIMATES TO MAKE THEM COMPARABLE TO THE ONCE SHOWN
TODAY IS TO ADJUST THEM TO REFLECT THE DIFFERENCESES WE SEE
IN THE 2013 AND 2017 ESTIMATE. WITH THIS ADJUSTMENT, AS SHOWN
BY THE PURPLE DASH SLIDE, AND AFTER ADJUST FOR EXAMPLE IN
INFLATION. THE MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME SNOT
STATISTICALLY DIFFERENT FROM THE PRERECESSION ESTIMATE FOR 2007.
OR THE YEAR WITH THE HIGHEST MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME.
1999. THESE ADJUSTMENTS ARE NOT MADE
IN OUR OFFICIAL PUBLICATIONS, TABLE PACKAGES OR THE REST-
REST-EFFICIENTATIONEFFICIENT ATION, BECAUSE
THEY WOULD REQUIRE THE ASSUMPTION THAT THE IMFACT WANT
DATA IMPROVEMENTS WOULD OF COURSE IDENTICAL IN ALL YEARS.
NOW LOOKING AT INCOME BY RACE AND HISPANIC ORIGIN.
THE 2018 REAL MEDIAN INCOME IN ASIAN HOUSEHOLDS, INCREASED —
AND BLACK AND HISPANIC HOUSEHOLDS WERE NOT STATISTIC
STATISTICALLY DIFFERENT. ASIAN HOUSEHOLDS HAD THE HIGHEST
MEDIAN INCOME IN 2018.
HOUSEHOLDS ARE DIVIDED FROM LOWEST TO HIGHEST.
SO 20 PERCENT OF HOUSEHOLDS ARE IN EACH GROUP SHOWN BY THE BAR
ON THE LEFT-SLIDE. THE BAR ON THE RIGHT SHOWS THE
AGGREGATE INCOME RECEIVED, BY THE LOWEST QUINTILE.
THE HIGHEST QUINTILE RECEIVED 5 5 PERCENT.
THE HIGHEST QUINTILE RECEIVED MORE INCOME NOT THAT OTHERS
COMBINED, LOOKING CLOSER, WE CAN SEE THE TOP 5 PERCENT OF ALL
HOUSEHOLDS, RECEIVED 23.1 23.1 PERCENT OF TOTAL AGGREGATE
HOUSEHOLD INCOME. USING INFORMATION ABOUT THE
DISTRIBUTION OF HOUSEHOLD INCOME INCOME, WE CAN PRODUCE A WIDELY
USED MEASURE OF EQUALITY. RANGEING FROM 0 TO 1.
INDICATING HIGHER INEQUALITY AS APPROACHES ONE.
NOT STATISTICICALLY DIFFERENT FROM 1017.
THESE NEXT SLIDES, SWITCH TO EARNINGS AND WORKING EXPERIENCE
DATA. HERE, WE SEE HISTORICAL DATA
COLLECTION ON THE OT REAL MEDIAN EARNINGS OF ALL WORKERS AND
FULL TIME YEAR ROUND WORKERS FROM 1960 TO 2018.
EARNINGS ARE THE SUM OF WAGES, SALARY AND SELF-EMPLOYMENT
INCOME. IN 2018 THERE 79 PERCENT OF
AGGREGATE INCOME CAME FROM EARNINGS.
THE 2018 RURAL MEDIAN EARNINGS INCREASED 3-POINT TOWER,% FROM
2017. ALTHOUGH CHANGES OF MEDIAN
EARNINGS OF MALE AND FEMALE WORKERS WERE NOT STATISTICICALLY
DIFFERENT FROM THE 2018 ESTIMATE ESTIMATE.
IN 2018, THE REAL MEDIAN EARNINGS OF MEN AND WOMEN.
EACH CREASED BY 3.4 PERCENT AND 3.3% RESPECTIVELY.
HERE ISSUE WE SEE THE FEMALE-TO- FEMALE-TO-MALE EARNINGS RATIO,
COMPARES THE MEDIAN EARNINGS OF WOMEN WORKING FULL TIME, YEAR
ROUND, TO THAT OF MEN. THE 2018 FEMALE TO MALE EARNINGS
RATIO WAS 81%. NOT STATISTICALLY DIFFERENT FROM
THE 2017 RATIO. YEAR TO YEAR CHANGES ARE NOT
COMMON, HOWEVER, THE FEMALE-TO- FEMALE-TO-MALE EARNINGS RATIO
HAS INCREASED 4.8% FROM 77.8% IN 2007.
THIS SLIDE SHOWS THE NUMBER OF WORKERS — THE TOTAL NUMBER OF
PEOPLE WITH EARNINGS REGARDLESS OF WORK EXPERIENCE INCREASE BY
THE 1.2 MILLION. THE NUMBER OF WOMEN WITH
EARNINGS INCREASED BY APPROXIMATELY 1.1 MILLION, WHILE
THE CHANGE FOR MEN WAS NOT STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT.
THE NUMBER OF MEN AND WOMEN, FULL TIME YEAR ROUND WORKERS,
INCREASE BY THE ABOUT 700,000 AND TWENTY-ONE .6 MILLION
RESPECTIVELY, BETWEEN 2017, AND 2018.
THIS CONTINUOUS A SHIFT FROM PART TIME, PART YEAR WORK STATUS
TO, FULL-TIME, YEAR-ROUND WORK STATUS.
NOW, WE’LL TAKE A LOOK AT POVERTY THIS.
SLIDE SHOWS THE OFFICIAL POVERTY RATE, AND NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN
POVERTY. THE OFFICIAL POVERTY RATE IN
2018 WAS 11.8%, DOWN FROM 12.3% IN 2017.
IN 2018, THERE WERE 38.1 MILLION PEOPLE IN POVERTY.
A DECREASE OF 4.1 MILLION PEOPLE IN 2017.
IN 2018, A FAMILY TWO-RANKED TWO ADULTS AND TWO CHILDREN WAS
CATEGORIZED AS IMPOVERTY, IF THEIR INCOME WAS LESS THAN
$25,465. THIS IS THE FOURTH CONSECUTIVE
ANNUAL DECLINE IN POVERTY. SINCE 2014, THE POVERTY RATE HAS
FALLEN THREE PERCENTAGE POINTS FROM 14.8 TO, 11.8 PERCENT.
FOR THE FOR THE TIME IN 11 YEARS YEARS, POVERTY RATE IN 2018 IS
LOWER NOT THAT POVERTY RATE THAN 2007, THE YEAR BEFORE THE MOST
RECENT RECESSION. ESTIMATES ARE CALCULATEED IN
ACCORDANCE WITH THE OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET STATISTIC
STATISTICAL POLICY DIRECTIVE 14. HERE, WE DEMONSTRATE DIFFERENCES
IN POVERTY TRENDS FOR PEOPLE ACROSS RACE AND HISPANIC
ORIGINAL GROUPS. IN 2018, THE ONLY GROUP TO SEE A
DECLINE IN POVERTY RATES WAS NON-HISPANIC WHITES, DECLINEING
FROM 8.5% IN 2017 TO 8.1% IN 2018.
THE POVERTY RATE IF 2018 WAS 28% PER BLACKS, 17.6% FOR HISPANIC
AND 10.1% FOR ASIANS. THIS SLIDE LOOKS AT POVERTY RATE
FOR AGE. FOR INDIVIDUALS UNDER AGE
EARNINGS 6.2% WERE IN POVERTY. DOWN FROM 17.4% IN 2017.
POVERTY DECREASED FOR AGE 18 TO 64 FROM 11.1% IN 2017 TO
TENNESSEE .7% IN 2018. O. IN THIS SLIDE, WE COMPARE
POVERTY RATES FOR FAMILIES FROM 1959 TO 2018.
THE CENSUS BUREAU HAS THREE DIFFERENT PRIMARY CLASSIFICATION
CLASSIFICATIONS. MARRIED COUPLE FAMILIES, MALE
HOUSEHOLD AND NO SPOUSE PRESENT FAMILIES AND FEMALE HOUSEHOLD,
NO SPOUSE PRESENT HOUSEHOLDS. IN ANTI-18, POVERTY DECLINED FOR
FAMILIES OVER ALL. AND FEMALE FAMILIES, SPECIFIC A. POVERTY
RATE WAS 4.7 PERCENT. FOR MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD FAIL.
HOUSEHOLD. THE FAMILY UPON FOR THE RATE
DECREASED 0 RESPONDENT 3 PERCENTAGE POINTS TO 9%.
WHILE FEMALE HOUSEHOLD FAMILY POVERTY RATES DECLINED TO 24.9%.
AT THIS TIME POVERTY RATE FOR FEMALE HOUSEHOLD FAMILYIES IN
2018 AMONG THE LOWEST RATES ON RECORD FOR THIS GROUP.
POVERTY RATES FOR THESE FAMILIES HAVE DECLINED IN THREE OF THE
LAST FOUR YEARS, A TOTAL DECLINE OF 5.8 PERCENTAGE POINTS IN 2014
2014. THE LARGEST DECLINE OF THIS
PERIOD, AMONG FAMILY TYPES SHOWN SHOWN.
THE GAP IN POVERTY RATES BETWEEN FEMALE HOUSEHOLD FAMILIES HAS
DECREASE FRIDAY TWICE .9 PERCENTAGE POINTS.
TO 21.1 PERCENTAGE POINTS DURING THIS TIME PERIOD.
WITH THIS IN MAINED, WE TURN OUR FOCUS TO FEMALE HOUSEHOLD FAMILY
FAMILIES TO IDENTIFY WHERE THESE CHANGES ARE HAPPENING.
THE ONLY STATISTICICALLY SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN 2018 ARE
FOR FAMILY ITS BLACK AND HISPANIC FEMALE HOUSEHOLDERS.
IN 2018, THE POVERTY RATES, OF BLACK FE PAIL HOUSEHOLD FAMILIES
DECLINED BY 2.5 PERCENTAGE POINTS TO 29.4 PERCENT.
FOR HISPANIC, POVERTY DECLINED 2.6 PERCENTAGE POINTS TO 30.8
30.8 PERCENT. THE 2018 POVERTY RATE OF 19.7
19.7 PERCENT FOR FAMILYIES WITH A SINGLE, NON-HISPANIC WHITE
FEMALE HISPANIC HOLDER WAS NOT STATISTICALLY DIFFERENT FROM THE
PRIOR YEAR. NEXT, WE EXAMINE YEAR-TO-YEAR
CHANGES. IN 2018, POVERTY RATES, THREE OF
THE FOUR REGION, DECLINED FROM 2017.
THE REGION THAT DID NOT EXPERIENCE DECLINE AND POVERTY
WAS WHERE THE FOR THE RATE WAS 13.6 PERCENT IN 2018.
IN 2018, THE POVERTY RATE FOR THE NORTHEAST WAS 10.3 PERCENT.
FOR THE MIDWEST, THE POVERTY RATE WAS 10.4%.
FOR THE WEST, 11.2%. MORE INCOME ON INCOME AND
POVERTY IS AVAILABLE IN THE REPORT AND ON LINE.>>GOVERNMENTAL PROGRAMS ARE
DESIGNED TO PROVIDE A SAFETY NET FOR SOME OF THE NATION’S MOST
VULNERABLE FAMILIES AND INDIVIDUALS.
THE SPM HELPS US TO ESTIMATE HOW WELL THESE PROGRAMS ARE WORKING
TO PULL PEOPLE OUT OF POVERTY. AT THIS TIME SPM EXTENDS THE
OFFICIAL POVERTY MEASURE. IT STARTS WITH CASH INCOME AND
ADDS NON-CASH BENEFITS SUCH AS FOOD AND NUTRITION PROGRAMS,
HOUSING NECESSITYIES. AND LEAVING OUT TAXES,
HEALTHCARE, COMPUTING AND CHILD CARE COSTS.
THE SPA POVERTY THRESHOLD PRODUCED, ON BUREAU OF LABOR
STATISTICS, BASED ON FOOD, CLOTHEERINGS SHELTER AND
UTILITIES. THESE ARE ADJUSTED FOR FAMILY
SIZE AND GEOGRAPHIC DIFFERENCES IN THE COST OF HOUSING.
THE SPM REPORT IS BASED ON CURRENT DATA — THE THE SPM DOES
NOT REPLACE THE OFFICIAL POVERTY MEASURE AND IS NOT USED TO
DETERMINE ELIGIBILITY FOR GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS.
LET ME BEGIN BY SUMMARIZING THE MAIN FINDINGS FROM THIS REPORT.
THE SPM RATE IN 2018 WAS 13-POINT TWENTY-ONE%.
THIS IS NOT STATISTICICALLY DIFFERENT FROM THE 2017SPM RATE
OF 13.0 PERCENT. THE SPM RATE FOR 2018 WAS 1.3
PERCENTAGE POINTS HIGHER NOT THAT OFFICIAL POVERTY RATE OF
11.8 PERCENT. THERE WERE 16 STATES, PLUS THE
DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, SPM RATES WERE HIGHER THAN OFFICIAL
POVERTY RATES. 22 STATES WITH LOWER RATE AND 12
STATES FOR WHICH THE DINNERSES WERE NOT STATISTICICALLY
SIGNIFICANT. THE SPM IS PRODUCED BY THE LABOR
OF BUREAU STATISTICS EXPENDITURE SURVEY DATA SEPARATE THRESHOLDS
ARE CREATED FOR RENTERS, HOMEOWNERS WITH A MORTGAGE AND
THOSE WHO OWN THEIR HOMES, FREE AND CLEARLY THE FORTUNATELY
POVERTY THRESHOLD IS CONSTANT THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES.
THE GEOGRAPHIC DINNER EVER DIFFERENCES FROM HOUSING COSTS.
THIS MAP SHOWS THOSE DINNERSES, WITH YELLOW AREAS WITH LOWER
THRESHOLDS. THIS SLIDE COMPARES CIRCUITS PM
ESTIMATES FOR 2018 WITH THE ESTIMATES FOR 2017 FOR ALL
PEOPLE AND BY AGE GROUP. THE 2018, SPM RATE FOR THE
ENTIRE POPULATION WAS 13.1 13.1 PERCENT.
THIS WAS NOT STATISTICICALLY DIFFERENT NOT THAT RATE OF 13.0
13.0 PERCENT. SMM RATES WERE NOT STATISTIC
SALE DIFFERENT FOR ANY OF THE AGE CATEGORIES.
SPM RATES FOR CHILDREN UNDER AGE 18, WAS 14.5 PERCENT.
ADULTS AGE 16 TO 64 HAD A RATE OF 12.5 PERCENT AND ADULTS 65
SCORED HAD A RATE OF 13.6 13.6 PERCENT IN 2018.
THIS SLIDE COMPARES THE SPM ESTIMATES FOR 2018, WITH
OFFICIAL. THE 2018SPM RATE FOR THE ENTIRE
POPULATION WAS 1.3 PERCENTAGE POINTS HIGHER THAN THE 2018
OFFICIAL POVERTY RATE. LOOK AT SPECIFIC AGE CATEGORIES,
THE SPM RATE WAS LOWER NOT THAT OFFICIAL POVERTY RATE FOR
CHILDREN BUT HIGHER NOT THAT OFFICIAL POVERTY RATE FOR PEOPLE
AGE 18 TO 64, AND PEOPLE AGE 65 SCORED.
CENSUS BUREAU ESTIMATES FOR THE SPM ARE AVAILABLE BACK TO 2009.
CIRCUITS PM RATE HAS BEEN HIGHER NOT THAT OFFICIAL POVERTY RATE.
RANGING FROM 0.6 TO — THIS
SHOWS THE UNITED STATES WIDEED INTO THREE CATEGORIES BY STATE.
THERE WERE 16 STATES PLUS THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, WHERE THE
SPM RATES WERE HIGHER THAN OFFICIAL.
THESE ARE SHADEED IN ORANGE. THERE ARE 22 STATES WHERE THE SP
SPM IS LOW ARE THAN OFFICIAL. THESE ARE SHADE BLUE. AND THERE
WERE 12 STATES WHERE THE DIFFERENCES IN RATES WERE NOT
STATISTICICALLY SAY. THESE ARE GRAY.
ONE IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTION THAT THE SPM PROVIDE SYSTEM THE
EFFECTIVENESS OF TAX CREDITS, IN ALLEVIATING POVERTY THESE
ELEMENTS, SUCH AS SOCIAL SECURITY AND UNEMPLOYMENT
INSURANCE ARE INCLUDED IN THE OFFICIAL ESTIMATE.
OTHER ELEMENTS SUCH AS SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION BENEFITS
AND TAX CREDITS ARE INCLUDED ONLY IN THE SPM RESOURCE MEASURE
WANT USEING CHART. WE CAN SEE THAT 27.3 MILLION
PEOPLE WERE TAKEN OUT OF POVERTY BY SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS.
THIS FIGURE SHOWS THE BREAKDOWN BY AGE, WITH THE MAJORITY OF
INDIVIDUALS TAKEN OUT OF POVERTY BY SOCIAL SECURITY AGE 65 AND
OLDER. 7.9 MILLION PEOPLE WERE TAKEN
OUT OF POVERTY BY REFUNDABLE TAX CREDITS.
3.1 MILLION WERE TAKEN OUT OF POVERTY BY SNAPCHAT BENEFITS.
HOWEVER, SUBTRACTING MEDICAL EXPENSES FROM INCOME, INCREASED
THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE BY 8 MILLION, USING THE SPM.
NEW INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE ON THE REPORT AND ON LINE. HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE IS AN
FORTUNATE MEASURE OF OUR NATION NATION’S OVERALL WELL-BEING.
WHETHER IT’S ILLNESS, INJURY OR PREVENTATIVE DISEASE, HEALTH
INSURANCE PROVIDES GREATER ACCESS TO MEDICAL CARE,
PROTECTION FROM HIGH, UNEXPECTED COMFORTS, AND MORE ECONOMIC
STABILITY. EACH YEAR, THE CENSUS BUREAU
PROVIDES DATA ON HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE.
WE LOOK AT WHO IS AND ISN’T COVERED, WHERE THEY LIVE, AND
WHAT TYPE OF INSURANCE THEY HAVE HAVE.
POLICY MAKERS USE THIS INFORMATION TO MAKE DATA-DRIVEN
DECISIONS. THIS IS HEALTH AND DISABILITY
STATE’S EXHIBIT BRANCH CHIEF. THE HEALTH INSURANCE ESTIMATES
RELEASED TODAY COME FROM THE CURRENT POPULATION SURVEY ANNUAL
SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC SUPPLEMENT OR CPS AASEC.
ASKINGS PEOPLE ABOUT THEIR HEALTH INSURANCE THE CALENDAR
YEAR. THE NATIONAL RESULTS COME FROM
THIS SURVEY TODAY’S CPS SAYS ASE ASEC HEALTH INSURANCE ESTIMATES
SHOULD ONLY BE COMPARED DIRECTLY TO ESTIMATES BASED ON THIS UP
UPDATED PROCESSING SYSTEM. STATE LEVEL ESTIMATES RELEASED
TODAY, COME FROM THE AMERICAN COMMUNITY SURVEY, WHICH ASKS
PEOPLE ABOUT THEIR COVERAGE AT THE TIME OF THE INTERVIEW.
DUE TO ITS LARGER SIMPLE SIZE, THE AMERICAN COMMUNITY SURVEY IS
A RECOMMENDED SOURCE OF HEALTH INSURANCE STATISTICS, FOR
SMARTER POPULATIONS AND LEVELS OF GEOGRAPHY.
LET ME BEGIN BY SUMMARIZING THE MAIN FINDINGS THIS YEAH AN
ESTIMATED 8.5% OF THE POPULATION OR ABOUT 27.5 MILLION PEOPLE DID
NOT HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE AT ANY POINT IN 2018.
BETWEEN 2017 AND 2018, THE UN UNINSURED RATE INCREASED .5S
FORAGE POINTS, AND NUMBER OF UN UNINSURED PEOPLE INCREASE BY THE
1.9 MILLION. THIS REPRESENTS THE FIRST YEAR-
YEAR-TO-YEAR INCREASE IN THE UN UNINSURED RATE IN THE CPS ASEC
FROM 2008 AND 2 THOU NINE. THE PERCENTAGE PEOPLE UNINSURED
INCREASEED IN THREE STATES AND 8
STATES BETWEEN 2017 AND 2018. IN 2018, MOST PEOPLE, NINETY ONE
.5% HAD HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE AT SOME POINT DURING
THE CALENDAR YEAR, WITH MORE PEOPLE HAVING PRIVATE HEALTH
INSURANCE, 7.3 PERCENT THAN PUBLIC COVERAGE, 34.4 PERCENT.
LOOKING AT PRIVATE COVERAGE FOR CLOSELY, EMPLOYER-BASED
INSURANCE. THE MOST COMMON COVERAGE, COVERING 55.1 PERCENT
OF THE POPULATION. 10.8 PERCENT OF PEOPLE PURCHASED
THEIR COVERAGE CORRECTLY. THE UPDATED PROCESSING SYSTEM
ALLOWS FOR THE FIRST TIME, TO DISTINGUISH WHETHER THIS
COVERAGE WAS THROUGH A STATE AND FEDERAL HOUSE INSURANCE
MARKETPLACE, SUCH AS HEALTHCARE HEALTHCARE.GOV IN 2018, 3.3
3.3 PERCENT OF PEOPLE OR 30.8 30.8 PERCENT OF PEOPLE WITH
DIRECT PURCHASE INSURANCE, OBTAINED THEIR COVERAGE THROUGH
THE MARKETPLACE. IN 2018, 34.4 PERCENT OF PEOPLE
HAD PUBLIC COVERAGE, WHICH INCLUDES MEDICARE, MEDICAID AND
VA AND COVERAGE. OVER TIME, CHANGES IN THE RATE
OF HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE AND THE DISTRIBUTION OF COVERAGE
TYPE MAY REFLECT ECONOMIC TRENDS TRENDS, SHIFT IN THE DEMOGRAPHIC
COMPOSITION AND POLICY CHANGES THAT AFFECT ACCESS TO CHANGE THE
PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE COVERED BY ANY TYPE OF HEALTH INSURANCE
DECREASED HALF A PERCENTAGE POINT BETWEEN 2017 AND 2018.
THIS DECREASE WAS PRIMARY DRIVEN BY A CHANGE IN PUBLIC COVERAGE.
BETWEEN 2017 AND 2018, THE PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE WITH
PRIVATE COVERAGE DID NOT STATISTICICALLY CHANGE AND THE
PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE WITH PUBLIC COVERAGE DECREASED .4 PERCENTAGE
POINTS. AMONG PUBLIC COVERAGE.
TED MEDICAID COVERAGE DECREASED 7 PERCENTAGE POINTS, WHILE
MEDICARE COVERAGE MOVE IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION, INCREASING
BY 4 PERCENTAGE POINTS. THIS INCREASE PARTLY DUE TO
GROWTH IN THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE AGE 65 AND OVER AND NOT A CHANGE
IN MEDICARE COVERAGE FOR ADULTS IN THIS AGE RANGE.
AGE STRONGLY ASSOCIATE WITH THE LIKELIHOOD THAT A PERSON HAS
HEALTH INSURANCE. IN 2018.
ADULTS AGE 65 AND OVER, HAD THE LOWEST UNINSURED RATE.
.9 PERCENT. FOLLOWED BY CHILDREN UNDER THE
AGE OF 19, 5 PENALTY 5 PERCENT AND ADULTS AGE 19TO 64, 11.7
11.7 PERCENT. BETWEEN 2017 AND 2018, THE UN
UNINSURED RATE INCREASED FOR ADULTS, AGE 35 TO 44 AND 45 TO
64, AS WELL AS FOR CHILDREN AGE 0 ATTEMPT IN 2018, 5.5 PERCENT
OF CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 19 DID NOT HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE
COVERAGE. .6 PERCENTAGE POINT INCREASE
FROM 2017. FOR MANY SELECTED
CHARACTERISTICS, THE PERCENTAGE OF CHILDREN, WITHOUT HEALTH
INSURANCE COVERAGE WAS SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER IN 2018,
THAN IN 2017. HOURS THE CHANGE WAS NOT UNIFORM
ACROSS GROUPS. FOR EXAMPLE, THE UNSUREED RATE
DID NOT CHANGE FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES WITH INCOME OF LESS
THAN 400 PERCENT OF POVERTY. HOWEVER, IT INCREASED .7
PERCENTAGE POINTS FOR CHILDREN LIVING IN FAMILIES AT OR ABOVE
400 PERCENT OF POVERTY. IN BOTH YEARS, THE RATE OF UN
UNINSURED DECLINE, AS THE INCOME TO POVERTY RATE INCREASED.
THE UPDATED PROCESSING SYSTEM, ALLOWSES TO REPORT MORE
DETAILED INFORMATION THAN PREVIOUSLY AVAILABLE, INCLUDING
SUBANNUAL OR WITHIN THE YEAR, HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE.
AMONG THE 296.2 MILLION PEOPLE COVERED AT ANY POINT DURING 2018
2018, MOST, 96.4 PERCENT HAD HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR
ALL 12 MONTHS. WHILE 3.6 PERCENT HAD COVERAGE
FOR 1 TO 11 MONTHS. MOST PEOPLE WITH COVERAGE HAD
COVERAGE THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE CALENDAR YEAR.
MOST PEOPLE WITH PRIVATE COVERAGE AND WITH PUBLIC
COVERAGE ALSO HAD THEIR COVERAGE FOR AWFUL 2018.
THE LARGER SIMPLE SIZE OF THE AMERICAN COMMUNITY SURVEY ALLOWS
ALLOWSES TO OBSERVE THE UN UNINSURED RATE, AS WELL AS
CHANGES IN THE UNINSURED RATE AT THE STATE LEVEL.
THIS MAP SHOWS THE UNINSURED RATE BY STATE IN 2018.
LIGHTER COLORS REPRESENT LOWER UNINSURED RATES AND DARK COLORS
REPRESENT HIGHER UNVERYIED RATES .
6 DATES, AND DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA ARE IN THE LIEEST SHADE
OF BLUE. WITH LESS THAN 5% PEOPLE. — THE PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE
WITHOUT HEALTH INSURANCE, STATISTICICALLY SIGNIFICANT
DECREASES RANGE FRIDAY .3 TO 1.8 PERCENTAGE POINTS AND ALL CRASES
WERE 1 PERCENTAGE POINT MORE OR LESS.
MORE INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE IN OUR REPORTS AND ON LINE.
WE HAVE A NUMBER OF TABLES, AND FIGURES IN OUR WEBSITE, IN
ADDITION TO A STORY THAT LOOKS AT CHANGES FOR COVERAGE IN
CHILDREN, AND A RESEARCH MATTERS BLOG THAT HEIGHTS A NEW MEASURE
OF HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE. COVERAGE AT THE TIME OF
INTERVIEW THAT WE INCLUDE FROM OUR REPORT FOR THE FIRST TIME
THIS YEAH ADDITIONAL DATA PRODUCTS.
BASE ON THE COMMUNITY SURVEY WILL BE AVAILABLE ON SEPTEMBER SEPTEMBER 26>>
THE MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME WAS $63,200. THE OFFICIAL PEDESTRIAN RATE IS
DOWN ANSWER .5S FORAGE POINT TO 11.8 PERCENT.
THE SUP ELEMENTAL POVERTY RATE WAS 13.1 PERCENT, NOT STATISTIC
STATISTICALLY STATISTIC STATISTICALLY DIFFERENT FROM
2017, AND PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE WITHOUT HEALTH INSURANCE
COVERAGE, WAS 8.5 PERCENT A 0.5 PERCENTAGE POINT INCREASE FROM
2017. I WILL TURN IT BACK OVER TO
MICHAEL.>>MICHAEL: THANK YOU, DAVID.
LET’S GET READY TO OPEN UP THE PHONE LINES FOR QUESTIONS.
JOIN US NOW, IN ADDITION TO DAVID WADDING TON AND HIS
COUNTERPARTS FROM THE SOCIAL ECONOMIC HOUSING DIVISION.
IANT CHIEF OF HEALTH AND DISABILITY STATISTICS, AS WELL
AS TRUDY WIN WARD, ASSISTANT DIVISION CHIEF OF OUR ECONOMIC
CHARACTERISTICS. PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND YOUR
AFFILIATION WHEN YOU ASK A QUESTION .>>HUH THANKS FOR TAKE MY CALL
AND FOR DOING THIS. JUST TO CLARIFY ON THE INCOME
GROSS, CAN YOU EXPLAIN IN ANY MORE DETAIL, WHAT CREDIBILITY TO
THE RESULTS WE HAD, WHETHER IT WAS CHANGES IN HOURS WORKED OR
CHANGES IN WAGES AND JUST TO BE CLEAR, YOU MENTIONED HOW THIS
COMPARED TO PREVIOUS PEAKS IN ‘ ’19, AND 07.
CAN YOU DESCRIBE THAT IN A LITTLE BIT MORE DETAIL?
>>THANK YOU FOR YOUR LINE OF QUESTIONING, ON INCOME IN
COMPARING PEAKS AND VALLEYS. THE FIRST PART OF YOUR QUESTION,
I BELIEVE, YOU’RE ASKING ABOUT IMPACTS, AND THINGS THAT MIGHT
AFFECT THOSE. I’M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO
TRUDY.>>TRUDY: THANK YOU, MICHAEL.
YOU CAN SEE FROM THE DATA WE RELEASED TODAY THAT, WE HAVE HAD
INCREASES IN EMPLOYMENT, BOTH ALL WORKERS, BUT PARTICULARLY,
PARTICULARLY, LARGE INCREASE IN FULL TIME,
FULL YEAR WORKERS. THAT IS A SHIFT FROM PART TIME
TO PULL YEAR WORK. ON THE MEDIAN INCOME, HISTORICAL
SERIES, AS WE EXPLAINED IN THE SLIDE, WHEN WE DO THE
CORRECTIONS TO TAKE ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPROVEMENTS WE HAVE MADE IN
BOTH QUESTIONNAIRE, AND THE PROCESSING SYSTEM, THE MEDIAN
HOUSEHOLD INCOME IN 2018 WAS NOT STATISTICICALLY DIFFERENT FROM
EITHER 2007, THE YEAR BEFORE THE MOST RECENT RECESSION, OR IN 19
1999, WHICH IS THE PEAK INCOME OF THAT HISTORICAL TIME SERIES.
>>THANKS FOR THAT. OPERATOR.
DO WE HAVE THE NEXT CALLER?>>YES, THE NEXT QUESTION COMES
FROM HOWARD SCHNEIDER FROM REUTERS.
YOU MAY ASK YOUR QUESTION.>>YEAH, I THINK THAT DOESN’T
REALLY ADDRESS WHAT THE QUESTION WAS AND LET ME REPHRASE T. CAN
YOU DECOMPOSE FOR US, WHY GROWTH IN MEDIAN AND MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD
NEXT STALLED BETWEEN 2017 AND 2017.
THERE’S A 3.4 PERCENT INCREASE IN EARNINGS.
WHY DID THE MEDIAN STALL OVER THE LAST YEAR AND FRANK FRANKLY,
COULD YOU DECOMPOSE WHERE THE DROP IN — WHAT’S DRIVING THE
DROP IN HEALTH INSURANCE.>>FIRST, BACK TO TRUDY ON THE
INCOME .
>>IT WAS 4.9 PERCENT. BUT THAT WAS NOT STATISTICICALLY
SIGNIFICANT FOR AWFUL 2017. SO IT WAS UP.
BUT THE INCREASE WAS NOT STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT.
AS FOR THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CHANGES IN EARNINGS, AND CHANGES
IN INCOME. IT’S A COMPLICATED QUESTION.
INCOME INCLUDES MONEY FROM EVERYBODY IN THE HOUSEHOLD,
EARNINGS AND NONEARNINGS WHILE EARNINGS ARE A PERSONAL MEASURE
OF WHAT ONE INDIVIDUAL IS BRINGING IN.
SO WE HAVE ONE YEAR WHERE EARNINGS ARE UP, AND INCOME FLAT
FLAT, OR INCOME UP AND EARNINGS FLAT.
IT’S NOT UNUSUAL FOR THOSE NUMBERS TO BE INCONSISTENT.
WE HAVE — I DON’T WANT TO EXAGGERATE.
HUNDREDS OF TABLES ON OUR WEBSITE THAT CAN YOU LOOK AT,
AND MAYBE HELP YOU DO THIS DE DECOMPOSITION A LITTLE BIT MORE.>>AND THEN QUESTION ON HEALTH
INSURANCE.>>YEAH, SO WE DID SEE AN
INCREASE IN THE UNINSURED RATE OF .5 PERCENTAGE POINTS AND
WHILE WE DON’T LOOK AT CAUSAL IM IMPACTS, WE ALSO SAW AT THE SAME
TIME, AN INCREASE IN — A DECLINE IN PUBLIC COVERAGE
BETWEEN 2017 AND 2018. MEDICAID DECLINED, BUT MEDICARE
COVERAGE INCREASED OVER THAT PERIOD.
PRIVATE COVERAGE DID NOT STATISTICICALLY CHANGE.>>NEXT QUESTION COMES FROM RI
RICARDO ALONZO SALVADOR W ASSOCIATED PRESS.
YOU MAY ASK YOUR QUESTION.>>RICARDO A LONGO,: THANKS FOR
TAKE MIG QUESTION, AND IT HAS TO DO WITH HEALTH INSURANCE AGAIN.
THIS IS THE FIRST INCREASE IN THE UNINSURED RATE SINCE WHAT
YEAR AND MY FOLLOW-UP QUESTION IS JUST TO VERIFY THAT THE
LARGEST DROP IN COVERAGE WAS MEDICAID BECAUSE YOU SAID PUBLIC
COVERAGE AND THEN AN INCREASE IN MEDICARE, BUT A DROP A MEDICAID.>>ALL RIGHT.
SO THE FIRST QUESTION HAD TO DO WITH THE LARGEST INCREASE IN THE
UNSUREED RATE OR –>>RICARDO ALONZO … THE FIRST
INCREASE IN HOW LONG. IT’S THE FIRST INCREASE IN HOW
LONG.>>OKAY.
SO IT’S THE FIRST YEAR-TO-YEAR INCREASE SINCE 2008- 2009 BUT WE
HAD UPDATED THE POSSESSION SYSTEM, SO WE WENT SAY THAT IT’S
A LARGER INCREASE OR A SMALL EAR — WE CAN’T TALK ABOUT THE
MAGNITUDE OF THE INCREASE BUT WE CAN SAY IT’S THE FIRST ONE SINCE
2008, 2009. AND TO YOUR SECOND QUESTION.
MEDICAID COVERAGE DECREASE BY THE 7 PERCENTAGE POINTS BETWEEN
2017 AND 2018. MEDICARE COVERAGE INCREASED .4
PERCENTAGE POINTS.>>AND WHEN YOU SAY 2008 TO 2009
2009, WHEN YOU REALLY MEAN IS IT’S THE FIRST INCREASE SINCE
2009, RIGHT? IT’S A LITTLE BIT CONFUSING THE
WAY THAT’S PRESENTED. THERE WAS AN INCREASE IN 2009 TO
2008 AND 2018 IS THE FIRST TIME IT’S GONE UP AGAIN.>>OUR NEXT QUESTION COMES FROM
TEEN SAY “FUHGETTABOUTIT ALEX WITH THE NEW YORK TIMES.
YOU MAY ASK YOUR QUESTION.>>THANK YOU FOR TAKING OUR
QUESTION. YEAH, I WAS TALKING ABOUT THE
EXPERT A JUSTED INCOME SHARES ON FIGURE 3 ON PAGE 7.
I’M JUST WONDER FIGURE CAN YOU GIVE US A LITTLE OF COLOR ON
WHAT’S DRIVING THE IMPROVEMENT IN THE LOWEST THREE QUINTILES,
AND THE DECLINES IN THE TOP-2-2 QUINTILES.
>>THANK YOU FOR YOUR QUESTION ON INCOME AND QUINTILES.
I’LL TURN THAT OVER TO TRUDY. WE HAVE GIVEN YOU A LOT OF
NUMBERS, AND WE HAVE A LOT TABLES ON LINE.
WE CAN’T REALLY EXPLAIN WHY ONE QUINTET GOES UP OR WHY ANOTHER
ONE GOES DOWN. THESE ARE PRE-TAX CASH INCOME
AND WE HAVE FOUND QUITE A BIG INCREASE IN FULL-TIME YEAR-ROUND
WORK AND THAT WOULD TEND TO BRING UP INCOMES FOR 14 PEOPLE.
WE COULD FIND IN THE BOTTOM QUINTILES OF THE INCOME
DISTRIBUTIONS. BUT IT CAN’T REALLY GIVE YOU A
PRECISE, THIS IS WHY THIS HAPPENED OR THIS IS WHY ONE WENT
UP, BUT ONE DID NOT. SORRY.
>>THANK YOU FOR THAT QUESTION. OPERATOR, DO WE HAVE OUR NEXT
CALL.>>TAMMY LUBY WITH CNN.
YOU MAY ASK YOUR QUESTION.>>TOMMY: THANK YOU VERY MUCH
FOR HOLDING CALL. TWO QUESTIONS.
ONE TO CLARIFY WHAT YOU SAID AN INCREASE IN FULL-TIME WORK.
I WANTED TO SURE THAT WAS A FULL YEAR FROM 2017 TO 2018.
ALSO, HEALTH INSURANCE. YEAH, I’M TRYING TO UNDERSTAND,
YOU PROBABLY DON’T WORK THIS THROUGH LIKE THIS, BUT IF THE
ECONOMY IS DOING BETTER. THERE’S A GREATER INCREASE IN
FULL-TIME YEAR-ROUND WORK. ONE WOULD THINK, THE PRIVATE
COVERAGE WOULD HAVE GONE UP. BUT YOU’RE SAYING THAT MEDICAID
DECLINE. SO THERE ARE FEW PEOPLE ON
MEDICAID, BUT THERE WAS NO CHANGE IN EMPLOYER-BASED
COVERAGE. I’M WONDERING IF ANY OF THEM
WENT TO PRIVATE COVERAGE OR THEY JUST DROPPED OFF AND, I GUESS
THEY BECAME UNSUREED, WHICH IS WHY THAT RATE WENT UP.
>>THANKS FOR THAT, LUBY. I’LL HAVE TRUDY VERIFY THE YEAR
TO YEAR INSURANCE.>>YES.
A YEAR TO YEAR INCREASE OF 3.2 MILLION, FULL TIME YEAR-
YEAR-ROUND WORKERS. 2017 VERSUS 2018.
>>YES. PRIVATE COVERAGE DID NOT SHOW A
STATISTICAL BETWEEN 2017 AND 2018.
NEITHER DID EMPLOYMENT-BASED COVERAGE.
IN TERMS OF DID SOME OF THE FOLKS DECLINE IN MEDICAID OR
CAME UP WITH MEDICAID, DID THEY GET PICKED UP BY EMPLOYMENT
BASED COVERAGE. RESEARCHERS CAN, AND THE PUBLIC
CAN TAKE A LOOK AT OUR DATA PRODUCTS, ANALYZE THE MICRO DATA
TO ANSWER THOSE SPECIFIC RESEARCH QUESTIONS.
>>ONE MORE PIECE OF THAT, WITH THE CURRENT POPULATION SURSAY,
WE DON’T KNOW WHICH PEOPLE ARE COMING ON OR OFF FROM YEAR TO
YEAR OF WE HAVE SURVEYS THAT ARE NEAR LONGITUDINAL.
WE CAN FOLLOW THOSE THINGS .
YOU CAN SEE HOW PEOPLE CHANGE COVERAGE AND NEW IN AND OUT OF
POVERTY AND CHANGE TYPES OF COVERAGE.
>>DID YOU HAVE A FOLLOW-UP?>>NO, THAT WAS GOOD.
T.>>THANKS FOR THAT.
OPERATOR. DO WE HAVE OUR NEXT CALLER>>
OUR NEXT QUESTION COMES FROM MARGOT SANGER KATZ FROM THE NEW
YORK TIMES. YOU MAY ASK YOUR QUESTION.
>>MARGOT KATZ: THANKS FOR DOING THIS, GUYS.
I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION OF THE UNINSURED NUMBERS.
I’M LOOKING AT FIGURE 5 AND YOU HIGHLIGHTED THE UNINSURED RATE
AMONG CHILDREN. I WANT TO MAKE SURE I UNDERSTOOD
THE INCOME COMPOSITION OF THIS CHANGE.
IT SEEMS LIKE YOU GUYS WERE SEEING THE LARGEST INCREASE IN
THE UNINSURED RATE AMONG CHILDREN OF HIGHER INCOME.
I WANT TO MAKE SURE, FIRST OF ALL FIRST OF
ALL, I AM INTERPRETING THAT CORRECTLY, AND YOU HAVE
EXPLANATIONS WHY THAT MIGHT BE HAPPENING, IF YOU CAN SEE HOW
IT’S CHANGEING IN PRIVATE OR PUBLIC FOR THAT GROUP.>>THE ONLY INCOME TO POVERTY
GROUP THAT EXPERIENCED A SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN THE RATE
AMONG CHILDREN WERE THOSE WITH INCOMES AT OR ABOVE 400 PERCENT
OF POVERTY. UNINSURE UNSURANCE RATES ARE
STILL HIGHEST IN LOWER POVERTY INCOME CATEGORIES.
STATES HAVE VARYING INCOME THRESHOLDS CUT OFF FOR MEDICAID
AND SHIFT COVERAGE. SOME OF THAT COULD BE FROM KID
SLIGHTLY HIGHER INCOME TO POVERTY CATEGORIES LOSING
ELIGIBILITY. BUT WE HAVEN’T YET SORTED OUT
WHY.>>OPERATOR.
NEXT QUESTION.>>THANK YOU AND NEXT QUESTION
COMES FROM SALINA WITH NPR. YOUR LINE IS OPEN.
>>SELINA: HI, I’M JUST WONDERING IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER
THOUGHTS ON THE CHANGE ON CHILDREN
CHILDREN’S HEALTH INSURANCE RATES.
IN ADDITION TO THE POVERTY, IT LOOKS LIKE YOU BROKE IT UP BY
RACE AND THAT HISPANIC CHILDREN ARE LOSE AGO — HAVE LOST A
SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF COVERAGE AND THERE YOU HAVE ANY THOUGHTS
ON WHAT COULD BE GOING ON THERE .
>>ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU, MICHAEL.
SO HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE IS IT AFFECT BY THE CHANGING
ECONOMIC CONDITIONS, SHIFT IN THE DEMOGRAPHIC COMPOSITION, AS
WELL AS POLICY CHANGE OF THE STATE AND FEDERAL LEVEL AT
SENSITIVE TOUS BUREAU, WE PROVIDE QUALITY ESTIMATES OF
HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE CHANGE CHANGES FROM YEAR DREAM BUT WE
DON’T LOOK NECESSARILY TO [INDISCERNIBLE] IMPACTS.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ON CHILDREN CHILDREN CHILDREN
CHILDREN’S HEALTHCARE COVERAGE, WE DO HAVE AN AMERICAN ACCOUNT
RATE FOR THAT TODAY.>>OPERATOR.
DO WE HAVE THE NEXT CALLER?>>CHRIS RUGIBAR WITH ASSOCIATED
PRESS. YOU MAY ASK YOUR QUESTION.
>>I. YES. CAN YOU GIVE ME ADDITIONAL DETAILS ON A RACIAL BREAK DOWN,
PARTICULAR LEAKER THE INCOME GAP BETWEEN WHITE AND BLACK
HOUSEHOLDS. WHITE HISPANIC IT APPEARS YOU
HAVE THAT INCREASE WRONG.>>I’LL TURN THAT OVER TO TRUDY,
WHO WILL ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT.
>>SURE. SO WE HAVE A SLIDE IN OUR
PRESENTATION, LET ME FIND WHICH SLIDE IT IS.
ON PAGE 14. IT LOOKS AT REAL MEDIAN
HOUSEHOLD INCOME BY RACE AND HISPANIC ORIGIN AND THE ONLY
GROUP TO SEE AN INCREASE IN THEIR MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME
WERE HOUSEHOLDERS WITH AN ASIAN HOUSEHOLDER.
THE CHANGES FOR THE OTHER RACE AND ETHNIC GROUPS WERE NOT
STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT. IN OUR REPORT, YOU CAN FIND THE
RATIO OF MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME TO NON-HISPANIC WHITE HOUSE
HOLDS WHO SERVICE OUR COMPARISON GROUP, AND YOU CAN FIND THE
SERVICE OF THAT IN OUR TEXT REPORT.>>CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE BIT
ABOUT THE STATE THAT IS SAW DECREASES IN INSURANCE COVERAGE
AND WHETHER THERE WERE ANY PARTICULAR TYPES OF COVERAGE
SHIFTS THERE IN THE TYPES OF POLICIES THEY HAVE, OR WHETHER
THAT WAS DRIVEN BY DEMOGRAPHIC OR POLICY CHANGES.
>>OKAY. STATES INCREASING HEALTH
INSURANCE.>>SEPTEMBER 26, WHEN A GOOD
PORTION OF THE ACS DATA IS RELEASED, WE ARE RELEASING
HEALTH INSURANCE BY TYPE OF COVERAGE, AND BY STATE WHERE
YOU’LL YOU’LL GET A MUCH MORE DETAILED LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED
IN HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE ACROSS THE STATE.
>>T.>>OPERATOR.
NEXT CALLER.>>NEXT QUESTION COMES FROM PHIL
PHIL. YOU MAY ASK YOUR QUESTION.
>>HI, THANKS FOR TAKING MY CALL CALL.
ANY THOUGHTS ABOUT WHY THE MEDICAID RATE DROPPED?
IS THAT JUST THE ECONOMY OR IS THERE SOMETHING ELSE?
>>AS I MENTIONED BEFORE, THERE ARE LOTS OF DIFFERENT FACTORS TO
SET UP HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE COVERAGE, INCLUDING SHIFT IN THE
DEMOGRAPHIC COMPOSITION OF THE POPULATION AND POLICY CHARGES AT
THE STATE AND FEDERAL LEVEL.>>THANKS FOR THAT RESPONSE.
>>AGAIN, JUST PRESS TRIPS TRIES 1″ IF YOU’D LIKE TO ASK A
QUESTION.>>
OUR QUESTION FOR THE MEDIAN ECONOMIC.
SO YOU MENTIONED EARLIER, THE MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME WAS NOT
STATISTICALLY DIFFERENT. COULD YOU TALK MORE ABOUT WHY IT
IS NOT STATISTICICALLY DIFFERENT DIFFERENT?
>>THANK YOU FOR THAT QUESTION. WHETHER IT’S STATISTICICALLY
DIFFERENT. I’LL TURN THAT OVER TO TRUDY .
>>I’M NOT QUITE SURE I UNDERSTAND YOUR QUESTION BUT WE
CALCULATE FOR EVERY ESTIMATE WE HAVE IN OUR REPORT.
WE CALCULATE A MARGIN OF ERROR. IF THE DIFFERENCE IS NOT GREATER
THAN THAN THAT MARGIN OF ERROR, WE SAY IT’S NOT STATISTICICALLY
SIGNIFICANT CHANGE OUR MARGIN OF
ERROR WAS 1 PERCENT FOR CHANGES IN MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME.
WE CLASSIFY IT AS NOT STATISTIC STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT.>>
REAL MEDIAN INCOME, REMAINS, STATISTICALLY UNCHANGE FRIDAY
LAST YEAR. IS THAT CORRECT?
>>YES. YES.
THAT’S CORRECT.>>T.>>ANDREW TERRIBLENER WITH ”
WITH “MARSHALL WATCH.”>>ANDREW: SHOW ANY SORT
RESULTS OF THE TAX CUTS, NOW THAT THEY WENT INTO AFFECT FOR
2018.>>
>>CAN YOU BE MORE SPECIFIC?>>
>>YOU KNOW, SPECIFIC AVERAGE THE QUINTILE IN THE INCOME.
IS THERE ANY SORT OF RATES OF CHANGE OR ANY SORT OF RATE THAT
IS MIGHT BE CONTRIBUTED TO THE EFFECTS OF, YOU KNOW, OF THE TAX
CUTS.>>I’LL LET DAVE TAKE THAT ONE.
>>YOU’RE RIGHT. THERE WERE BELIEVE OBVIOUSLY
SEVERAL POLICY CHANGE.
THE THINGS IN THE QUINTILES ARE PRETAX.
THOSE ARE THE EARNINGS PEOPLE EARNED AND IT’S PRE-TAXED INCOME
INCOME. THAT WOULDN’T REFLECT THE
POTENTIAL TAX RATE PEOPLE HAVE ON THERE.
>>HOW ABOUT SUPPLEMENTAL POVERTY MEASURE, IF THAT TAKES
INTO ACCOUNT TAX CREDIT.>>SO THE SUPPLEMENTAL POVERTY
MEASURE, DOES HAVE ON THE ONE TABLE THERE, YOU CAN SEE THE IM
IMPACT, WHEN WE DO ACCOUNT FORTUNATE PROGRAM THAT IS
ACTUALLY HELP THE LOW INCOME FAMILIES, AS WELL AS NECESSARY
EXTENDS EXPECT PENCES, SUCH AS THE TAXES
AND THERE’S A COUPLE DIFFERENT TYPES OF TAXES THAT ARE ACCOUNT
ACCOUNTED FOR IN THERE. SO THOSE, IN THE ONE TABLE, YOU
CAN SEE THE IMPACT OF THE TAXES AND IF YOU’D LIKE, YOU CAN LOOK
AT THE DATA FOR THIS YEAR, 2018, SPM M AND COMPARE IMPACT TO
THOSE OF THE 2017 AND SEE IF THOSE TAX
RATES HAD A DIFFERENT LEVEL AND IMPACT ON THE SPM. I JUST WANTED TO ASK A QUICK
TECHNICAL QUESTION ON THE CHANGE CHANGES AND METHODOLOGY TO THE
CPS. AND HAVE YOU GUYS UPDATED YOUR
LAST YEAR’S DATA AND HOW WE ARE COMPARING IT OR IS THAT NOT
SIGNIFICANT BECAUSE OF THE CHANGES IN METHODOLOGY?>>I’LL ENCOURAGE TO YOU GO BACK
AND LOOK AT WEBINAR WE RECORDED LAST WEEK, THAT DETAILS, TENSE
IVE CHANGES ON WHAT WE DID WE DID
PROCESS THE DATA FOR 2017 AND WE HAVE A RESEARCH FILE FOR
REFERENCE YEAR 2016 THAT SHOWS THE DATA PROCESSED IN THE
NEUROSISSING SYSTEM SO YOU CAN GO BACK AND LOOK AT THOSE DATA
AGAIN, AWE THE COMPARISONS WE MADE TODAY FOR 2017 ARE IN OUR
BRIDGE FILE THAT WE CREATED CREATE FOR
THAT SPECIFIC PURPOSE TO, MAKE ESTIMATES COMPARABLE.
>>I THINK TRUDY HAS A LITTLE BIT MORE TO ADD TO THAT.
>>WE HAVE RELEASED A FULL SET OF DETAILED TABLES, THAT HAVE
THE 2017 ESTIMATES DONE WITH THE NEW PROCESSING SO THAT YOU CAN
SEE AWFUL OUR DETAILED TABLES ONLY, PROCESSED BOTH WAYS W
LEGACY SYSTEM AND WITH THE UP UPDATED SYSTEM.
AND THOSE ARE ON THE LINE.>>OKAY.
T.>>WE ALSO HAVE AN ENTIRE PAGE
ON OUR WEBSITE, ATTRIBUTED TO THIS WHERE WE HAVE ALL THE
PAPERS WHERE WE CONDUCTED OUR ANALYSIS, AND WE SHOW THOSE
FINDINGS. AND YOU’VE GOT THE SEVERAL
DATASETS THAT ARE UP THERE FOR 2016 AND 2017 FOR INCOME AND
POVERTY, AS WELL AS FOR HEALTH INSURANCE.
>>WE HAVE GOT YOU COVERED. DO WE HAVE OUR NEXT CALL?
>>NEXT QUESTION COMES FROM TAMMY LUBY FROM CNN.
YOU MAY ASK YOUR QUESTION.>>TAMMY: THREE QUESTIONS, HOPE
LEAVE, RELATIVELY QUICK. ONE, I WANTED TO CONFIRM YOU’RE
SAYING IT’S THE FIST YEAR OVER YEAR THE HEALTH INSURANCE
INCREASE IS THE FIRST YEAR-OVER- YEAR-OVER-YEAR INCREASE SINCE
2009. DURING THE GREAT RECESSION, THE
UNINSURED RATE DID NOT GO UP?>>FIRST YEAR TO YEAR INCREASE
IN UNINSURED RATE FROM 2008 TO 2009.
COMPARING EP 17 TO 18, WE SAW AN INCREASE, 2008 TO 2 THOU FINELY,
WE SAW AN INCREASE. THE OTHER YEAR-TO-YEAR
COMPARISONS IN BETWEEN, ANOTHER INCREASES NOT STATISTICICALLY
SIGNIFICANT.>>O. SO IN 10 TO 11, 9 TO 10,
ALL OF THOSE, DURING THE GREAT RESEEKS EVERYBODY WAS LOSING
THEIR JOB. THERE WERE NO INCREASES IN THE
UNSUREED RATE DURING THAT TIME.>>ACTUALLY, THE GREAT RECESSION
WAS IN JUNE OF 2009. SO WE STARTED — ECONOMY STARTED
TO GROW AGAIN AFTER JUNE OF 2009 2009.>>YOU’RE SAYING THE UNINSURED
RATE WENT UP HALF A PERCENTAGE POINT, BUTT NUMBERS ARE 8.8 TO
8.5. IS THAT ROUND MING YES.
>>OKAY. I’M GOING TO HAVE TO TELL MY
EDITOR THAT. AND FINALLY, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY
WAS DRIVING THE INCREASE IN THE UNINSURED RATE?
WAS IT THE DECLINE IN MEDICAID, WAS IT THE INCREASE IN CHILDREN
CHILDREN’S COVERAGE OR THE INCREASE IN CHILDREN’S COVERAGE,
INSURED RATES. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ARE THE ONE
OR TWO MAIN DRIVERS OF THE INCREASE?
>>AGAIN, WE DON’T PSYCHE TO IDENTIFY CAUSAL IMPACKS.
WHAT WE DO IS TO PROVIDE HEALTH INSURANCE AS A ISSUE OF
WELL-BEING AND CHARGES IN COVERAGE OVER TIME.
>>NO, I UNDERSTAND THAT. BUT NUMERICALLY, WHAT WAS
DRIVING IT?>>SO THE DECLINE IN PUBLIC
COVERAGE, SERGEANT CONTRIBUTED TO THE OVERALL INCREASE IN IN
THE UNINSURED RATE, SPECIAL THANKS BECAUSE PRIVATE COVERAGE
DID NOT STATISTICICALLY CHANGE.>>
NO STATISTICAL CHANGE IN 50 COVERAGE.
>>OKAY. ALL RIGHT.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>REES JONES WITH “USA TODAY”.”
YOU MAY ASK YOUR QUESTION.>>REES: THANKS FOR THE CALL.
THE MEDIAN INCOME STAYS STATISTICALLY THE SAME THOUGH
EARNINGS WENT UP. IS THAT BECAUSE OTHER INCOME
SOURCES LIKE SOCIAL SECURITY INCOME, ET CETERA, WENT DOWN?>>NOT NECESSARILY, AS I
EXPLAINED IT BEFORE, MEDIAN INCOME IS MADE UP OF THESE OTHER
SOURCES AND IS COMBINING ALL THE INCOME FROM THE OTHER HOUSEHOLD.
EARNINGS IS A PERSONAL MEASURE. SO SOMEBODY WHO MAKES, WHO IS IN
A HOUSEHOLD THAT IS MAKING THE MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME DOESN’T
NECESSARILY AT THE MEDIAN FOR EARNINGS.
SO THOSE ARE TWO DIFFERENT GROUPS OF THE POPULATION THAT
CAN MOVE IN DIFFERENT WAYS.>>EL ENWOLFHORSE WITH THOMPSON
REUTERS FOUND AMOUNT YOU MAY ASK YOUR QUESTION.
>>HI. THANK YOU.
I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THE WAGE GAP BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN.
SO IT’S STATISTICICALLY UN UNCHANGED.
I JUST WONDER FEDERAL ANYBODY HAS ANY THOUGHTS ABOUT WHY IT
HASN’T CHANGED, PERHAPS GIVEN SO MUCH ATTENTION PAID TO THE ISSUE
AND IF IT MEANS IT’S BEEN LEVELING OFF SINCE THAT INCREASE
OF 4.8 PERCENT SINCE 2007.>>THANK YOU FOR THAT WERE
HIGHER ON THE WAGE GAP. WE WON’T BE ABLE TO GET INTO THE
ACTUAL NUMBERS IN THOSE CHANGES BUT THE DRIVERS BEHIND IT
SOMETIMES WE CAN’T NECESSARILY GO INTO DETAILS.
>>SURE. IT’S UNUSUAL FORS TO SEE A YEAR
YEAR-TO-YEAR CHANGE IN THAT FEMALE-TO-MALE EARNINGS RATIO.
PARTIALLYPARTIAL PARTIALLY BECAUSE
THEY’RE BOTH MEDIANS AND THEY HAVE RATHER SUBSTANTIAL MARGINS
OF ERROR. BEFORE THE RESECTION 2007, THAT
HAS GONE UP BY 4.4 PERCENT. AND SINCE 2012, IT’S GONE UP BY
6.7 PERCENT. BUT WE HAVE SEEN IMPROVEMENTS
OVER THE PAST DECADE FOR SURE.>>WE’LL GO LIVE AT END OF THE
PRESS CONFERENCE THAT, TALKS ABOUT RELATIVE GAINS OF MEN
VERSUS YEAR. WE SEE WOMEN’S NUMBERS GOING UP,
BOTH IN TOTAL WORKS, FULL TIME, YEAR-ROUND WORKERS, AND THEIR
EARNINGS UP, AND THE POVERTY RATES DOWN.>>THANKS FOR TAKING MY QUESTION
QUESTION. CAN YOU REPEAT OR CLARIFY, IT
WAS STATISTICALLY MENTIONED THE TOP
TOP TOP-5 PERCENT OF HOUSEHOLDS,
GETTING ABOUT 23% OF INCOME. CAN YOU JUSTIFY OR CORRECT WHAT
I HEARD AND CAN YOU GIVE A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORICAL CONTEXT
CONTEXT, HAS THAT CHARGED A LOT AND I WANTED TO VERIFY I BELIEVE
YOU SAID, THERE WAS NO STATISTIC STATISTICAL THAT YOU FOUND IN
INCOME EQUALITY FROM 2017 AND 2018, AND I JUST WANTED TO
VERIFY THAT AS WELL .
>>YOU’RE CORRECT THE HIGHEST QUINTILE OF THE INCOME INTO
CONSIDERATION, RECEIVED 50% OF AGGREGATE INCOME IN 2018, AND
HIGHEST TOP 5% OF THE INCOME DISTRIBUTION RECEIVED 23-POINT
TWENTY-ONE PERCENT OF AGGREGATE INCOME.
WE DID NOT SEE CHANGES IN THIS BETWEEN 2017 AND 2018.
IN FACT, THE ONLY QUINTILE THAT SAW GROWTH IN ITS SHARE OF
AGGREGATE INCOME WAS THE SECOND QUINTILE, THE SECOND TO THE
LOWEST QUINTILE. IN OUR REPORT, WE HAD A TABLE
THAT WILL SHOW YOU THESE SHARES BY QUINTILE GOING BACK TO I
THINK 197 SO YOU CAN LOOK AT HOW IT HAS CHANGED OVER TIME.
UP TO THE THIRD PART OF YOUR QUESTION.
LIKE THE FEMALE TO MALE EARNINGS RATIO, IT’S NOT STATISTICALLY
NOT A NUMBER THAT OFTEN HAS A YEAR-TO-YEAR STATISTICAL CHANGE,
BUT IT HAS BEEN TRENDING UP.>>CAN YOU STATISTICALLY
DIFFERENT THAT, IN TERMS OF THE HIGHEST QUINTILE.
52% OF AGGREGATE INCOME. CAN YOU SAY IF THAT HAS STAYED
STABLE IN THE PAST FEW YEARS, IS THAT QUINTILE GETTING MORE THAN
THEY TYPICALLY HAVE, CAN YOU JUST QUICKLY SAY HOW THAT CHARGE
STUDY YOU CAN SEE HOW IT’S
CHANGED OVER TIME. I DON’T HAVE THAT IN MY HEAD.
I’M SORRY.>>OKAY.
