The Kaiser/Harvard Health News Index, November/December 1997

The November/December 1997 edition of the Kaiser Family Foundation/Harvard Health News Index includes questions about major health issues covered by news media, including questions about AIDS and the Health Care Bill of Rights. The survey was based on a national random sample of 1,201 Americans conducted December 4-9, 1997 which measures public knowledge of health stories covered in the news media 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.
