Americans Rank Health Care Near the Top of Their Economic Woes, New Poll Finds
Date:4/28/2008

g a recommended medical test or treatment in the past year because of the cost, up from 17 percent in 2005.

Kaiser also released the results of its April Kaiser Health Tracking Poll: Election 2008, the seventh in a series tracking voters' views about where health care fits as an issue in the 2008 presidential election, as well as their views on potential approaches to health reform. The latest survey finds voters are most likely to name the economy as one of the two most important issues for the candidates to discuss, followed by Iraq and health care. The three issues rank in the same order among Democrats, Republicans and independents. Early polls in the series have also looked at the ways health care costs contribute to voters' concern about the economy.

The polls were designed and analyzed by public opinion researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation. A nationally representative random sample of 2,003 adults was interviewed by telephone between April 3 and 13, 2008. The margin of sampling error for the survey is plus or minus 3 percentage points. For results based on subgroups, the sampling error is higher.

Full results are available at http://www.kff.org/kaiserpolls/h08_pomr042908pkg.cfm.

The Kaiser Family Foundation is a non-profit, private operating foundation dedicated to providing information and analysis on health care issues to policymakers, the media, the health care community and the general public. The Foundation is not associated with Kaiser Permanente or Kaiser Industries.
