Health News Index – November/December 1999

Health News Index November/December, 1999

The November/December 1999 edition of the Kaiser Family Foundation/Harvard Health News Index includes questions about major health stories covered in the news, including questions about Medical Errors and UnitedHealth Group’s Policy Change. The survey is based on a national random sample of 1,515 Americans conducted December 3-13, 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.
