Health News Index March/April, 2000
The March/April 2000 edition of the Kaiser Family Foundation/Harvard School of Public Health, Health News Index includes questions about major health stories covered in the news, including questions about the Supreme Court’s ruling on the the Food and Drug Administration’s authority to regulate the marketing of tobacco products. The survey is based on a national random sample of 1,012 Americans conducted March 31-April 3, 2000 which measures public knowledge of health stories covered by news media during the previous month. The Health News Index is designed to help the news media and people in the health field gain a better understanding of which health stories in the news Americans are following and what they understand about those health issues. Every two months, Kaiser/Harvard issues a new index report.
