Kaiser/Harvard Health News Index, April 1997
The April 1997 edition of the Kaiser FamilyFoundation/Harvard Health News Index includes questions about major health issues covered in the news, including questions about Late-Term Abortions, the Morning After Pills and the Tobacco Industry. The survey also features public knowledge of when women think mammogram screenings should begin. The survey is based on a national random sample of 1,1015 Americans conducted April 4-8, 1997 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.
