New for the 2010 Release:
Starting with the 2008 SAHIE estimates, the SAHIE program updated its methodology to incorporate the estimates of health insurance coverage from the American Community Survey (ACS). The incorporation of the ACS into the modeling procedures has allowed for more detailed income group data as well as a higher level of precision in the estimates.
The ACS-based estimates are available:

Due to their large number of records the CSV files may truncate when imported into Excel.
"Data Inputs" describes the data that are used in the models to produce SAHIE estimates. It discusses the sources of each dataset, key concepts, and any adjustments made to the data.
Due to these methodological differences, comparisons between ACS-based SAHIE estimates and earlier years are not recommended. Guidance on comparisons within the ACS-based estimates is available.
The 2005-2007 SAHIE estimates utilized the Annual Social and Economic Supplement (ASEC) of the Current Population Survey (CPS) to model health insurance coverage. See methodology for additional information. The estimates were produced for either 200% or 250% of the income-to-poverty ratio (IPR) depending upon the state's implementation of the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Programs (NBCCEDP) guidelines.
