  • This Kaiser Health Tracking Poll was designed and analyzed by public opinion researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation led by Mollyann Brodie, Ph.D., including Liz Hamel, Claudia Deane, and Sarah Cho. The survey was conducted August 13- 19, 2013, among a nationally representative random digit dial telephone sample of 1,503 adults ages 18 and older, living in the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii (note: persons without a telephone could not be included in the random selection process). Computer-assisted telephone interviews conducted by landline (751) and cell phone (752, including 385 who had no landline telephone) were carried out in English and Spanish by Princeton Data Source under the direction of Princeton Survey Research Associates International (PSRAI). The combined landline and cell phone sample was weighted to balance the sample demographics to match Census estimates for the national population on sex, age, education, race, Hispanic origin, nativity (for Hispanics only), region and telephone usage. One additional question was asked on the Princeton Data Source omnibus survey. The Kaiser Health Tracking Poll Omnibus Supplement was conducted August 15-18, 2013, among a nationally representative random digit dial telephone sample of 1,000 adults ages 18 and older, living in the continental United States. Interviews conducted by landline (500) and cell phone (500, including 265 who had no landline telephone) were carried out in English only. All statistical tests of significance account for the effect of weighting. The margin of sampling error including the design effect for the full sample of the main survey is plus or minus 3 percentage points and plus or minus 4 percentage points for the omnibus survey. For results based on subgroups, the margin of sampling error may be higher. Note that sampling error is only one of many potential sources of error in this or any other public opinion poll.
