Data Note: Predictors of support for increased U.S. spending on global health

One of the key questions explored in the Kaiser Family Foundation Survey of Americans on the U.S. Role in Global Health is the public’s level of support for U.S. government spending to improve health for people in developing countries. The survey found that about two thirds of Americans say current levels of U.S. spending in this area are too low (26 percent) or about right (39 percent). In this Data Note, we take a deeper look at those who want to increase spending — the 26 percent who say the U.S. currently spends too little on global health efforts —and attempt to determine which factors are the strongest predictors of such support.
