POLL: SUPPORT FOR PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICES
• A new poll conducted by Morning Consult with the de Beaumont Foundation in
May 2021 reveals strong support for local public health departments and the
services they provide.
• U.S. adults rate public health departments as the most important community
organizations in creating a healthy community – above hospitals, schools,
businesses, police and fire departments, and others.
FINDINGS: IMPORTANCE OF HEALTH DEPARTMENTS
Among other community organizations, adults say public health departments play
the most important role in creating a healthy community.
• 92% of adults say public health departments play an important role in creating a
healthy community. (This compares with a previous poll de Beaumont conducted
with Public Opinion Strategies that showed 73% in 2020 and 56% in 2018.)
• When asked to choose the organization that plays the most important role,
respondents chose public health departments over hospitals, schools,
businesses, police departments, parks, fire departments, and libraries. (In the
2020 Public Opinion Strategies poll, public health departments ranked lower than
hospitals, schools, fire departments, and police departments.)
FINDINGS: FAMILIARITY WITH HEALTH DEPARTMENTS
More than half of adults say they’re familiar with their local health department.
• 57% said they are familiar with their local health department (23% “very familiar”),
compared with 44% who said they’re familiar with their local health official (16%
“very familiar”).
• By comparison, the 2018 and 2020 Public Opinion Strategies polls showed that
49% and 60% of adults, respectively, said they were familiar with their local health
department. The percentage of people saying “very familiar” was 15% in 2018 and
17% in 2020, compared with 23% in the new Morning Consult poll.
FINDINGS: PUBLIC HEALTH PRIORITIES
Adults place a high priority on ensuring every community in their state receives public
health services and are likely to prioritize funding for future pandemic prevention efforts.
• Three-quarters of adults (76%) say it is a high priority for their state’s government to
ensure that every community within their state receive all of the tested public health
services.
• A third of adults (31%) say that funding future pandemic prevention efforts should be the
most important priority.
• Two-thirds of adults (63%) say they support an increase in corporate taxes for public
health services.

METHODOLOGY
Morning Consult conducted a poll on behalf of
the de Beaumont Foundation May 14-17, 2021,
among a sample of 2,200 adults.
The interviews were conducted online and the
data were weighted to approximate a target
sample of adults based on gender, educational
attainment, age, race, and region.
Results from the full survey have a margin of
error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
METHODOLOGY
Public Opinion Strategies conducted surveys the first week of September 2018 and the second
week of July 2020. The sample was drawn randomly from state voter files, with state-specific
sample size determined by individual votersʼ selection probability proportional to size of the
state voter population, relative to the national population of registered voters. Quotas were set
by specific demographics such as state, region, age, gender, and ethnicity based on data from
the U.S. Census and voter files to ensure the sample was representative of the registered voter
population nationally. Interviews were conducted by phone using CATI software with trained
live interviewers. Nonresponse weights were used to adjust the resulting estimates to be
nationally representative. Overall, 1,800 individuals participated in the two polls—1,000 in
2018 and 800 in 2020.

National Poll: Perceptions of Public Health Departments & Services

  • 1.
  • 2. POLL: SUPPORT FOR PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICES • A new poll conducted by Morning Consult with the de Beaumont Foundation in May 2021 reveals strong support for local public health departments and the services they provide. • U.S. adults rate public health departments as the most important community organizations in creating a healthy community – above hospitals, schools, businesses, police and fire departments, and others.
  • 3. FINDINGS: IMPORTANCE OF HEALTH DEPARTMENTS Among other community organizations, adults say public health departments play the most important role in creating a healthy community. • 92% of adults say public health departments play an important role in creating a healthy community. (This compares with a previous poll de Beaumont conducted with Public Opinion Strategies that showed 73% in 2020 and 56% in 2018.) • When asked to choose the organization that plays the most important role, respondents chose public health departments over hospitals, schools, businesses, police departments, parks, fire departments, and libraries. (In the 2020 Public Opinion Strategies poll, public health departments ranked lower than hospitals, schools, fire departments, and police departments.)
  • 4. FINDINGS: FAMILIARITY WITH HEALTH DEPARTMENTS More than half of adults say they’re familiar with their local health department. • 57% said they are familiar with their local health department (23% “very familiar”), compared with 44% who said they’re familiar with their local health official (16% “very familiar”). • By comparison, the 2018 and 2020 Public Opinion Strategies polls showed that 49% and 60% of adults, respectively, said they were familiar with their local health department.

  • 25. METHODOLOGY Morning Consult conducted a poll on behalf of the de Beaumont Foundation May 14-17, 2021, among a sample of 2,200 adults. The interviews were conducted online and the data were weighted to approximate a target sample of adults based on gender, educational attainment, age, race, and region. Results from the full survey have a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
  • 26. METHODOLOGY Public Opinion Strategies conducted surveys the first week of September 2018 and the second week of July 2020. The sample was drawn randomly from state voter files, with state-specific sample size determined by individual votersʼ selection probability proportional to size of the state voter population, relative to the national population of registered voters. Quotas were set by specific demographics such as state, region, age, gender, and ethnicity based on data from the U.S. Census and voter files to ensure the sample was representative of the registered voter population nationally. Interviews were conducted by phone using CATI software with trained live interviewers. Nonresponse weights were used to adjust the resulting estimates to be nationally representative. Overall, 1,800 individuals participated in the two polls—1,000 in 2018 and 800 in 2020.
