RALEIGH — New census data being released is expected to offer a new look at health insurance coverage in North Carolina as the reform debate in Washington heats up again.

The U.S. Census Bureau on Thursday will release annual population and community data that contains information about health coverage across the United States. The census data contains
information on income, poverty and health insurance coverage last year.

Data specific to North Carolina is also due to be released.

A state health research agency reported in March that recession-fueled layoffs gave North Carolina the country’s highest growth rate of people without health insurance.

The North Carolina Institute of Medicine estimated that as many as 1.8 million North Carolina residents under 65 were without health insurance.

Report: Pilot in fatal NC Harrier crash unprepared

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. — Investigators say a North Carolina-based Marine Corps pilot killed in a crash last year lacked training for his mission to a college football game and his supervising officer deserves some blame.

The Daily News of Jacksonville reported Thursday that the investigation led to the commanding officer of a Marine aviation training squadron at the Cherry Point Air Station being relieved of his duties.

Capt. Alberto Bencosme died when his Harrier jet crashed Dec. 29, 2008. Bencosme had a support role for a flyover at the Outback Bowl, requiring him to fly solo to McDill Air Force Base near Tampa, Fla.

The report said Bencosme had not piloted a Harrier solo for about two months before the crash and his preparation had other shortcomings.
