Summary
This survey was conducted by RAND between November 1999 and January 2000. The purpose of this data collection was to obtain a detailed view of the present attitudes and opinions of consumers regarding health care and to inform the development of the quality improvement program being developed by the California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF). The mission of the CHCF is to expand access to affordable, quality health care for under-served individuals and communities, and to promote fundamental improvements in the health status of the people of California. This survey sampled over 4,000 Californians, and allowed a close-up view of difficult to reach and traditionally under-served populations: the elderly, the chronically ill, the uninsured, low-income populations, and Hispanics. The general scope of the information gathered included consumer beliefs about adequacy of health care information they received, preferences for additional types and sources of information, evaluation of the quality of existing information sources, and how they used information about health. Respondents were asked a series of detailed questions about whether they were concerned about health care, whether they were experiencing difficulty in choosing health plans or physicians or deciding upon treatment options, whether there were good, available sources of information about health care, and whom they trusted to give them advice about health care. Background information on respondents includes health status, utilization of care, language, age, sex, race, marital status and household enumeration, country of origin, education, employment, and income....
