The U.S. Census Bureau reports that due to a computer programming error, it has been overstating the number of people without health insurance since 1995. The reissued figures show the number of people without health insurance in 2005 was 44.8 million, or 15.3% of the population, not 46.6 million, or 15.9%, as was originally estimated.
