Kaiser/Harvard Health News Index September/October 1998

Health News Index September/October, 1998

The September/October 1998 edition of the Kaiser Family Foundation/Harvard Health News Index includes questions about major health stories covered in the news, including questions about the Uninsured, Late Term Abortions and Emergency Contraception. The survey is based on a national sample of 1,202 Americans conducted October 10-18, 1998 which measures public knowledge on 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.
