August 26, 2008. The U.S. Census Bureau released the 2007 Current Population Survey (CPS) health insurance estimates today, reporting that the number of uninsured Americans has decreased in the past year, with 45.7 million Americans now uninsured. The increase in coverage is being driven by government-funded health insurance, with increases in the number of publicly insured children and adults. Detailed estimates are available at the Census Bureau's Health Insurance web page.
