Women’s Health Access:  The Role of Income and Race/Ethnicity

2001 Kaiser Women's Health Survey and Issue Briefs

The Kaiser Women's Health Survey was designed to better understand how the health system is working for women, in terms of health coverage, access to services, and in meeting their health needs. The survey also highlights the special challenges facing different groups of women, including women of color, those who are low-income, and those who are uninsured. This nationally representative telephone survey was administered to 3,966 women ages 18 to 64 in the Spring and Summer of 2001.

Based on the 2001 Survey, the Foundation released three issue briefs with new analysis and an in-depth look at health care access challenges that low-income women and women of color face as well as women's roles in family health care decision-making and coordination.
