State sites outperform US marketplace in Affordable Care Act signups

The Philadelphia Inquirer, August 25, 2014
States running their own Affordable Care Act marketplaces enrolled more people in health insurance than those using the federal marketplace, according to an analysis by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania's Leonard Davis Institute. Given the federal Website's dreadful October launch, that isn't exactly jaw-dropping news. But Penn's Health Insurance Exchange researchers were surprised to find that even after began working well in December, state-based marketplaces kept outperforming the federal site. This is of local interest since both Pennsylvania and New Jersey opted to use the federal exchange and not run their own sites.
