    For Community Analyst update:
    American Community Survey 2008-12 now includes C27016: HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE STATUS BY RATIO OF INCOME TO POVERTY LEVEL IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS BY AGE.

    This provides estimates important for healthcare providers, local government health agencies and others interested in health insurance reform -- the first estmates, nationwide, at the ZIP and CT level, of persons potentially eligible for coverage under the Affordable Care Act. 

    It would be great to have this information available as variables to map in Community analyst.
