   The HHS Data Council was asked by the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation to undertake a review of HHS' major survey portfolio to assess and identify opportunities for alignment, improved comparability, best practices, and major gaps in measures and questions in selected areas of HHS and national policy and programmatic priorities. Health insurance estimates were one focus of this review. This report examines health insurance coverage estimates obtained from the following four core surveys: the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), sponsored by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS)/Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS), sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ); and the American Community Survey (ACS) and the Current Population Survey (CPS), sponsored by the U.S. Census Bureau.
