Abstract: 

This report presents data on income, poverty, and health insurance coverage in the United States based on information collected in the 2012 and earlier Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplements (CPS ASEC) conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Summary of findings:
• Real median household income declined between 2010 and 2011, a second consecutive annual decline.
• The poverty rate in 2011 was not statistically different from 2010.
• Both the percentage and number of people without health insurance decreased between 2010 and 2011.
