Tomorrow we’ll see new data about San Diego County’s poverty rate, health insurance coverage and income spread from the U.S. Census Bureau. The stats come from 2006 updates to the department’s surveys.

You’ve got a couple of choices: you can watch the live webcast announcement of the data on the Census Bureau’s website tomorrow at 7 a.m. our time.

Or, you can check back here, on Survival for updates and analyses of the numbers from local and state think tanks.

A notable element to be released tomorrow is the “Gini ratio” broken down to county level, said Susan Duerksen, spokeswoman for the Center on Policy Initiatives, a left-leaning local think tank. That means we’ll see how San Diego County stacks up to other counties, the state and the nation in income equality. On that ratio, a 0 score means everyone earns the same amount of money, and a 1 score means one person has all of the money and everyone else has none.
