The Kaiser/Harvard Health News Index May/June 1999
The May/June 1999 edition of the Kaiser Family Foundation/Harvard Health News Index includes questions about major health stories covered in the news, including questions about Gun Control and Youth Violence. The survey is based on a national random sample of 1,000 Americans conducted June 11-16, 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.
