The Kaiser/Harvard Health News Index July/August 1999
The July/August 1999 edition of the Kaiser Family Foundation/Harvard Health News Index includes questions about major health stories covered in the news, including questions about the White House Medicare Proposal and the Patients’ Bill of Rights. The survey is based on a national random sample of 1,000 Americans conducted August 6-10, 1999 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.
