Annual index of the health of the American population

This grant supports a collaborative effort between the American Medical Association (AMA) and the George H. Gallup International Institute to undertake the design, implementation, and public release of an annual national health index. The index will be a composite of subscores for three populations: youth, adults, and older adults. These data will be drawn from a variety of sources, including major published studies, surveillance data, annual health-related surveys, and health care utilization statistics. Included in the index will be self-report responses from the survey to be conducted for the AMA by the George H. Gallup International Institute. The AMA will collect and assess published data, conduct the analyses, and develop a report. The index and report will be reviewed by a panel of expert advisors.
