Washington (AP) The Census Bureau today reports new numbers on poverty, income and health insurance -- an annual snapshot of the economic well-being of American households.

The report will imediately become fodder for the presidential campaign, a kind of economic scorecard on the Bush administration.

The latest data will cover 2007, when the economy was starting to wobble. In 2006, poverty was down and income was up. But the number of uninsured was higher, and the improvements in income and poverty did not match the levels reached before President Bush took office.
