Report: Women’s Health Care Chartbook: Key Findings from the May 2011 Kaiser Women’s Health Survey
The data in this chartbook describe women's experiences in the health care system, highlighting the differences between various sub groups of women, particularly those who are at risk for poor access to care, those who are low-income, and women of color.
From the introduction:
The data presented in this Women’s Health Care Chartbook are based on a nationally representative survey of 2,015 women ages 18 to 64 interviewed by telephone in the spring and summer of 2008. This survey builds on prior Kaiser Family Foundation surveys on women’s health, conducted in 2001 and 2004, when the economy was much stronger. This survey was conducted in the early days of the recession in 2008, and economic conditions have become much worse since the data were collected.
This chartbook provides the latest data on major areas of women’s health policy, including women’s health status, insurance coverage, their interaction with the health care delivery system, use of preventive services, access to care, and work and family health issues.
