Providing RWJF with public opinion polling, synthesis, and analysis on key health and health care issues, 2013-2015

This is a renewal of an existing collaborative project among the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), National Public Radio, and the Harvard Opinion Research Program at the Harvard School of Public Health. The overarching goals of this two-year project are to provide insights about what the American public thinks of key health and health care issues through public opinion polling; to communicate those results to a broad and diverse audience; and to use the results to highlight and contextualize other RWJF initiatives. The project includes eight new public opinion surveys, a series of analyses that synthesize existing polling data, and a survey of Americans' views on the role of foundations in improving health and health care. Deliverables will include topline results, summary reports, draft news releases and datasets for each of the eight polls, a summary report for each synthesis of existing poll data, and a report on the Foundation survey.
