The KFF Health Tracking Poll is the Kaiser Family Foundation’s signature survey project, providing consistent and up-to-date information on the public’s opinions, knowledge, and experiences with the U.S. health care system.  The Tracking Poll has been a primary tool for monitoring all aspects of public opinion on the Affordable Care Act, including the public’s experiences under the law. The Tracking Poll also captures the public’s views and experiences with Medicare, Medicaid, health costs, prescription drugs and other health issues that are in the news or are driving national and state policy debates. See all health tracking polls below.

Our Health Tracking Poll Interactive  allows users to track public opinion on the Affordable Care Act, from the inception of the law to the present, for subgroups based on age, race, income, gender, party identification and insurance status.
