West vs. South: Regional Differences in Views of the Health Reform Law

This Data Note examines regional variations in public opinion of the health reform law based on the November 2010 Kaiser Health Tracking Poll. The analysis takes a special look at the Western and Southern regions of the country, where many states are likely to see the biggest increases in coverage under the law, and which stand to be disproportionately eligible for federal Medicaid funds. Despite these similarities in how the two regions might be affected, the Data Note finds broad differences in how residents of these regions are reacting to the law.
