Economic vs. Political vs. Statistical Significance

The Census Bureau quietly released the following:
The Census Bureau today issued revised figures on health insurance coverage showing that more Americans have health insurance coverage than previously reported.

The revised estimates show that, in 2005, 44.8 million people, 15.3 percent of the population, were without health insurance – about 1.8 million fewer than the Census Bureau reported in August 2006. Based on the Current Population Survey, the original 2005 estimate was 46.6 million, or about 15.9 percent of the population .
I am sure that for some the revised figures do not change the politics of nationalizing the health insurance system, but the revision is interesting nonetheless.
