This poll found that half of Americans said that they were aware of retail health clinics in
their community, and 16 percent who knew of these clinics said that someone in their
household had used one in the last six months.
Each month, the Truven Health Analytics-NPR Health Poll surveys 3,000 Americans to gauge attitudes and opinions on a wide range of healthcare issues. Poll results are reported by NPR's Scott Hensley on the health blog, 'Shots,' and on air.
"The polls let us delve into consumer attitudes about everything from flu vaccines to taxes on sugary drinks," said Hensley, NPR health correspondent and blogger. "The results provide a powerful and timely way to understand and explain how people view pressing health issues."
Complete survey results are posted on this page and NPR's reports on the findings are archived here.
The Truven Health Analytics-NPR Health Poll is powered by the Truven Health Analytics PULSESM Healthcare Survey, an independently funded, nationally representative telephone poll, which collects information about health behavior, attitudes and utilization from more than 100,000 US households annually. Survey questions are developed in conjunction with NPR.
