This is an important study of health care in America, which was conducted by the Center for Health Administration Studies, University of Chicago. Who, it asks, has access to health care and at what price? A large sample of people from various groups, including those with low incomes, and ethnic and rural groups, answered questions on such topics as the availability of doctor appointments and emergency care, waiting time in doctors′ offices, and confidence in the doctor′s ability. One of the study′s most innovative features is its development of ways to measure health care needs.
