Poll: Hypothetical anthrax attack and antibiotics
Date:2/19/2010

part of an on-going series of surveys focused on the public's response to public health emergencies by the Harvard Opinion Research Program (HORP) at Harvard School of Public Health. It is the second poll focused on anthrax specifically, following a poll conducted in 2001 concerning the worries and behaviors of people in three metropolitan areas following reports of multiple anthrax attacks in those locations.

This study was designed and analyzed by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). The project director is Robert J. Blendon of the Harvard School of Public Health. The research team also includes Gillian K. SteelFisher, John M. Benson, Mark M. Bekheit and Robin C. Herman of the Harvard School of Public Health, as well as Melissa J. Herrmann of SSRS/ICR, an independent research company. Interviews were conducted via telephone (including both landline and cell phone) for HORP by SSRS/ICR of Media (PA) December 9 through December 28, 2009 among a nationally representative sample of 2625 respondents age 18 and older. Of those a total of 1092 nationally representative respondents, 517 from the NYC metro area, 509 from the DC metro area and 507 from the Trenton/Mercer County, NJ area.

The margin of error for total respondents is +/-2.44%; National +/-3.64%; NYC +/-5.61%; DC +/-5.74%; Trenton/Mercer +/-5.63% at the 95% confidence level.

Possible sources of non-sampling error include non-response bias, as well as question wording and ordering effects. Non-response in telephone surveys produces some known biases in survey-derived estimates because participation tends to vary for different subgroups of the population. To compensate for these known biases, sample data are weighted to the most recent Census data available from the Current Population Survey for gender, age, race, education, region or state (where relevant), and homeownership. Sample data are also adjusted to National Health Interview Survey estimates of cell p
