The Kaiser/Harvard Health News Index, May/June 1998

Health News Index May/June, 1998

The May/June 1998 edition of the Kaiser Family Foundation/Harvard Health News Index includes questions about major health stories covered in the news, including questions about Viagra and Social Security. The survey is based on a national random sample of 1,202 Americans conducted June 12-18, 1998 which measures the public’s 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.
