Kaiser/Harvard Health News Index, November/December 1998

Health News Index November/December, 1998

The November/December 1998 edition of the Kaiser Family Foundation/Harvard Health News Index includes questions about major health issues covered in the news, including questions about the Tobacco Settlement, World AIDS Day and Abortion Clinic Bombings. The survey is based on a national random sample of 1,200 Americans conducted December 8-13, 1998 which measures public knowledge of health stories covered in the 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.
