Effect of discussion and deliberation on the public's views of priority setting in health care: focus group study. (2/899)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the extent to which people change their views about priority setting in health care as a result of discussion and deliberation. DESIGN: A random sample of patients from two urban general practices was invited to attend two focus group meetings, a fortnight apart. SETTING: North Yorkshire Health Authority. SUBJECTS: 60 randomly chosen patients meeting in 10 groups of five to seven people. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Differences between people's views at the start of the first meeting and at the end of the second meeting, after they have had an opportunity for discussion and deliberation, measured by questionnaires at the start of the first meeting and the end of the second meeting. RESULTS: Respondents became more reticent about the role that their views should play in determining priorities and more sympathetic to the role that healthcare managers play. About a half of respondents initially wanted to give lower priority to smokers, heavy drinkers, and illegal drug users, but after discussion many no longer wished to discriminate against these people. CONCLUSION: The public's views about setting priorities in health care are systematically different when they have been given an opportunity to discuss the issues. If the considered opinions of the general public are required, surveys that do not allow respondents time or opportunity for reflection may be of doubtful value.  (+info)

Reforming the health sector in developing countries: the central role of policy analysis. (3/899)

Policy analysis is an established discipline in the industrialized world, yet its application to developing countries has been limited. The health sector in particular appears to have been neglected. This is surprising because there is a well recognized crisis in health systems, and prescriptions abound of what health policy reforms countries should introduce. However, little attention has been paid to how countries should carry out reforms, much less who is likely to favour or resist such policies. This paper argues that much health policy wrongly focuses attention on the content of reform, and neglects the actors involved in policy reform (at the international, national sub-national levels), the processes contingent on developing and implementing change and the context within which policy is developed. Focus on policy content diverts attention from understanding the processes which explain why desired policy outcomes fail to emerge. The paper is organized in 4 sections. The first sets the scene, demonstrating how the shift from consensus to conflict in health policy established the need for a greater emphasis on policy analysis. The second section explores what is meant by policy analysis. The third investigates what other disciplines have written that help to develop a framework of analysis. And the final section suggests how policy analysis can be used not only to analyze the policy process, but also to plan.  (+info)

The corporate practice of health care ... a panel discussion. (4/899)

The pros and cons of treating health care as a profit-making business got a lively airing in Boston May 16, when the Harvard School of Public Health's "Second Conference on Strategic Alliances in the Evolving Health Care Market" presented what was billed as a "Socratic panel." The moderator was Charles R. Nesson, J.D., a Harvard Law School professor of 30 years' standing whose knack for guiding lively discussions is well known to viewers of such Public Broadcasting Service series as "The Constitution: That Delicate Balance. "As one panelist mentioned, Boston was an interesting place for this conversation. With a large and eminent medical establishment consisting mostly of traditionally not-for-profit institutions, the metropolis of the only state carried in 1972 by liberal Presidential candidate George McGovern is in one sense a skeptical holdout against the wave of aggressive investment capitalism that has been sweeping the health care industry since the 1994 failure of the Clinton health plan. In another sense, though, managed care-heavy Boston is an innovative crucible of change, just like its dominant HMO, the not-for-profit but merger-minded Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. Both of these facets of Beantown's health care psychology could be discerned in the comments heard during the panel discussion. With the permission of the Harvard School of Public Health--and asking due indulgence for the limitations of tape-recording technology in a room often buzzing with amateur comment--MANAGED CARE is pleased to present selections from the discussion in the hope that they will shed light on the business of health care.  (+info)

The myths of emergency medical care access in the managed care era. (5/899)

In this paper, we examine the perception that emergency care is unusually expensive. We discuss the myths that have fueled the ineffective and sometimes deleterious efforts to limit access to emergency care. We demonstrate the reasons why these efforts are seriously flawed and propose alternate strategies that aim to improve outcomes, including cooperative ventures between hospitals and managed care organizations. We challenge managed care organizations and healthcare providers to collaborate and lead the drive to improve the cost and clinical effectiveness of emergency care.  (+info)

Trust in performance indicators? (6/899)

The 1980s and 90s have seen the proliferation of all forms of performance indicators as part of attempts to command and control health services. The latest area to receive attention is health outcomes. Published league tables of mortality and other health outcomes have been available in the United States for some time and in Scotland since the early 1990s; they have now been developed for England and Wales. Publication of these data has proceeded despite warnings as to their limited meaningfulness and usefulness. The time has come to ask whether the remedy is worse than the malady: are published health outcomes contributing to quality efforts or subverting more constructive approaches? This paper argues that attempts to force improvements through publishing health outcomes can be counterproductive, and outlines an alternative approach which involves fostering greater trust in professionalism as a basis for quality enhancements.  (+info)

Attitudes toward cost-containment features of managed care: differences among patient subgroups. (7/899)

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the extent to which personal characteristics and circumstances affect attitudes toward cost-containment aspects of managed care. STUDY DESIGN: A national probability sample component of the 1994 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation National Access to Care Survey. METHODS: Telephone and in-person survey follow-up of 3480 persons who completed the 1993 National Health Interview Survey. Findings on respondents' attitudes toward three principal cost-saving features of managed care are reported. These features are choosing physicians from insurance company lists (LIST), accessing specialists through referrals only (SPECIALIST), and seeing a nurse sometimes instead of a physician (NURSE). Data were categorized and analyzed by different population subgroups. RESULTS: Respondents were divided almost equally in terms of how much they minded healthcare features of managed care, with approximately one third minding a lot, one third minding a little, and one third minding not at all. However, slightly more people minded LIST (42%) and NURSE (39%) features a lot. The respondent subgroups with the lowest proportion "minding a lot" were the uninsured poor and those already in managed care. Those groups minding the most were the elderly, those in fee-for-service plans, persons in poor health, and those with ischemic heart disease. CONCLUSIONS: Acceptance of managed care cost-containment features varies by consumer characteristics. Those who have the most to gain financially by cost-containment features and the least to lose in terms of their access to care mind the managed care features the least. Persons who object most strongly are those who are not financially constrained and who are in poor health.  (+info)

The cost of health system change: public discontent in five nations. (8/899)

Many nations have undergone changes in health care financing and services. The public notices policy changes in health care and frequently bears new and unexpected costs or barriers to care unwillingly. This paper presents data from surveys of about 1,000 adults conducted during April-June 1998 in each of five countries--Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States--to measure public satisfaction with health care. In no nation is a majority content with the health care system. Different systems pose different problems: In systems with universal coverage, dissatisfaction is with the level of funding and administration, including queues. In the United States, the public is primarily concerned with financial access.  (+info)

Public opinion on climate change is the aggregate of attitudes or beliefs held by the adult population concerning the science, economics, and politics of global warming. It is affected by media coverage of climate change. A 2007-2008 Gallup Poll surveyed individuals in 128 countries. This poll queried whether the respondent knew of global warming. For those individuals who were aware of the issue, they thought it was human-induced. Over a third of the worlds population were unaware of global warming. Developing countries have less awareness than developed, and Africa the least aware. Of those aware, residents of Latin America and developed countries in Asia led the belief that climate change is a result of human activities while Africa, parts of Asia and the Middle East, and a few countries from the former Soviet Union led in the opposite. Opinion within the United Kingdom was divided. Opinions in the United States vary intensely enough to be considered a culture war. A Gallup poll in 2014 ...

Public opinion polls and perceptions of US human spaceight, Roger Lanius (2003)\n\n\A belief exists in the United States about public support for NASAs human spaceight activities. Many hold that NASA and the cause of the human exploration of space enjoyed outstanding public support and condence in the 1960s during the era of Apollo and that public support waned in the post- Apollo era, only to sink to quite low depths in the decade of the 1990s. These beliefs are predicated on anecdotal evidence that should not be discounted, but empirical evidence gleaned from public opinion polling data suggests that some of these conceptions are totally incorrect and others are either incomplete or more nuanced than previously believed. This article explores the evolution of public support for space exploration since the 1960s. Using polling data from a variety of sources it presents trends over time and offers comments on the meaning of public perceptions for the evolution of space policy and the ...

Subjects were given questionnaires asking their responses to six statements on public issues. On some of the issues subjects were highly committed to their own views, while other issues were selected for the subjects lack of knowledge and commitment. Some subjects were asked to respond anonymously, and others were led to believe that their responses would be made public. Each questionnaire contained a bogus distribution of responses from students at the subjects university. Each statement of interest was supported by the bogus majority in one questionnaire form and rejected by it in the other form. Several types of conformity were considered. For the low-commitment issues, subjects were influenced in the direction of the bogus consensus. For the high-commitment issues, the bogus consensus had no significant effect. Implications for understanding the effect of polls on public opinion are discussed. ...
By providing information about voting intentions, opinion polls can sometimes influence the behavior of electors, and in his book The Broken Compass, Peter Hitchens asserts that opinion polls are actually a device for influencing public opinion.[36] The various theories about how this happens can be split into two groups: bandwagon/underdog effects, and strategic (tactical) voting.. A bandwagon effect occurs when the poll prompts voters to back the candidate shown to be winning in the poll. The idea that voters are susceptible to such effects is old, stemming at least from 1884; William Safire reported that the term was first used in a political cartoon in the magazine Puck in that year.[37] It has also remained persistent in spite of a lack of empirical corroboration until the late 20th century. George Gallup spent much effort in vain trying to discredit this theory in his time by presenting empirical research. A recent meta-study of scientific research on this topic indicates that from the ...
To the editor: Stanford political scientist Jon A. Krosnick is puzzled that legislators ignore popular opinion on climate change. Years of polling data, he says, show a majority of people acknowledge climate change and that government needs to control greenhouse gas emissions. Krosnick wishes that polls played a more prominent role in governance. (Stanfords Jon Krosnick: On climate change, most Americans want action, op-ed, May 5). ...
Background: The continuing decline in response rates to household surveys is a concern for the health and social sciences as it increases the risk of selective non-response biasing the estimates of interest. Methods: We analysed non-response bias in a postal survey measuring drinking behaviour, experience of harm and opinion on local government alcohol policies among residents in six New Zealand communities. The Continuum of Resistance model, which suggests that late respondents to a survey are most similar to non-respondents on the measures of interest, was used to guide our investigation. Results: Men, younger people, those of M¯aori descent and those living in more deprived areas were less likely to respond to our survey than women, older people, those not of M¯aori descent and those living in comparatively affluent areas. Late respondents more closely resembled non-respondents demo-graphically than early respondents. The prevalence of binge drinking and experience of assault was higher, ...
CIELs current focus is Smoke & Fumes, a project that examines the links between the oil and tobacco industries. The organization is looking to help provide proof for the legal case against the oil industry by showing how the petroleum industry has known about the risks of global warming and climate change for decades and worked actively to minimize that knowledge. The goal is to prosecute the big oil industry players under racketeering laws, a move similar to the historic - and successful - 1999 suit that was launched against tobacco industry giants Phillip Morris and others.. Such legal action is getting a mixed response from legislators in the United States. Climate Wire reports that House Republicans subpoenaed the New York and Massachusetts attorneys general on Wednesday, July 13, along with several environmental groups in relation to documents filed for the purposes of an ongoing investigation of Exxon Mobil Corp. at the state level. The original investigation is focusing on whether or ...
Kaiser Family Foundation has a long record of measuring the publics attitudes on reproductive health care issues, including several in-depth surveys of women of reproductive age (between the ages of 18 and 44). In this poll, KFF examines public opinion towards many different facets of reproductive health care, with a focus on recent changes to federal reproductive health policy made by the Trump administration. In particular, the administration recently finalized major changes to the Title X program, which provides federal funding for family planning services for lower-income people. If implemented, these changes would prohibit federal Title X funds from going to any family planning organization that also provides abortion services or referrals. The new regulation could also channel federal family planning funds to non-traditional organizations that only offer natural family planning methods or promote abstinence and do not provide other contraceptive services. The implementation of the new ...

The outcomes of a survey analysing public acceptance of biomass cogeneration heat (and power) plants (BCH(P)Ps) of 3,000 Bavarian households in the neighbourhood of ten BCH(P)Ps are reported in this paper. Acceptance was measured in two different distances to plants in order to check for the so-called Not-in-my-backyard effect (NIMBYism): Nearby regions (0-500 m) and distant regions (2,000 m plus). The survey results show that public acceptance is better than expected and interviewees only feel very little disturbed by BCH(P)Ps. The motives of plants proponents fundamentally differ from the motives of the few opponents, who mainly raise egoistic reasons, whereas proponents have a look on their regions welfare respectively the well-being of the planet. Furthermore, there are huge deficits in residents information. There is only little evidence for distance-related NIMBYism in case of the surveyed sites. In contrast, aspects like heat-delivery, attitudes towards renewable energies and degree
This study is part of a quadrennial series designed to investigate the opinions and attitudes of the general public and a select group of opinion leaders on matters relating to foreign policy, and to define the parameters of public opinion within which decision-makers must operate. Through telephone surveys, general public respondents (Part 2) were interviewed October 15-November 10, 1998, and opinion leaders (Part 1) were interviewed November 2-December 21, 1998. Respondents were asked to assess their level of interest in the news and specifically in foreign policy. Respondents were also asked whether concern for foreign policy is important in a presidential candidate, and their views were sought on the foreign policy records of President Bill Clinton and former presidents George Bush, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, Lyndon Johnson, John F. Kennedy, Dwight Eisenhower, and Harry Truman. Those queried were asked for their opinions on economic aid to foreign nations, ...
Study Purpose: To gather public opinion on drug-related violence in states of Mexico, perceptions of the national economy and political behavior, and social capital through face-to-face interviews. Study Design: The public opinion survey consisted of 7,416 interviews based on a probabilistic sample design. The survey was implemented in areas with high, intermediate, and low levels of local violence. The survey was conducted by face-to-face interviews (at the residence of the interviewee) based on a sample men and women over 18 years of age and residents of Mexico. In Mexico face-to-face interviews are necessary because both telephone and internet have a very low rate of penetration. Sample: The sample design was based on a list of 64,934 electoral sections defined by the Federal Election Institute for 2011. The selection procedure was a complex, stratified and PPS random sampling design over electoral sections sampling framework (nominal listing 2011). It was a complex selection procedure due to ...
In todays world, the new media has added a whole new dimension to this problem. Everybody is his/her own publisher. The good, the bad, the ugly assault our sensibilities with horrifying aggression and speed without pretence to decorum. Insults are hauled, abuses are thrown around unabashedly. Yet, if a public office holder of today is not on any these platforms to assimilate, guage and weigh opinion, he might just be living in a fools paradise. Even the Pope is very active in the social media. And not just for the social function of it, but for the purpose of dissemination of information as well as sampling of public opinion and gauging public reaction to his policies, projects and programmes.. I have heard many public office holders, including some in the more civilised or if you like, advanced democracies like the USA even say the same when it suits them. Some say glibly that they do not take decisions based on media reports. Of course the media more accurately captures the public mood ...
Introduction: Opinion says Sir Thos. Brown, rides upon the neck o reason; and men are happy, wise or learned according as that empress shall set them down in the register of reputation. However, weigh not thyself in the scales of thy own judgment but let the opinion of the judicious be the standard of thy merit. This is a question that comes before us in every relation of life, and it is always within our own choosing whether or not we will do certain things that are according to or against public opinion. It has been truly said that men may encounter without fear the danger of the sea, the horrors of war, the pestilence that walketh at Monday, but the opinion of all men he cannot face so easily, and why? Because the desire to be well thought of by others is one of the most deepseated of all sentiments that belongs to the human heart. We are by nature imitative creatures, fearing to do a single uncommon thing, for the reason that it might make us ridiculously conspicuous and if perchance ...
Semantic networks represent and model messages and discourse as a relational structure, emphasizing patterns of interdependence among semantic units or actors-concepts. This chapter traces the epistemological roots of semantic networks, then illustrates with examples how this approach can contribute to the study of political rhetoric or opinions. It focuses on three levels of analysis: cognitive mapping at the individual level, discourse analysis at the interpersonal level, and framing and salience at the collective level. Drawing from the rich literature on natural language processing and machine learning, the chapter introduces readers to essential methodological considerations when extracting and building up semantic networks from textual data. It also offers a discussion on the relevance of semantic networks to analyzing public opinion, especially as it manifests in discursive and deliberative theories of democracy.
That the manufacture of consent is capable of great refinements no one, I think, denies. The process by which public opinions arise is certainly no less intricate than it has appeared in these pages, and the opportunities for manipulation open to anyone who understands the process are plain enough. […] [A]s a result of psychological research, coupled with the modern means of communication, the practice of democracy has turned a corner. A revolution is taking place, infinitely more significant than any shifting of economic power. […] Under the impact of propaganda, not necessarily in the sinister meaning of the word alone, the old constants of our thinking have become variables. It is no longer possible, for example, to believe in the original dogma of democracy; that the knowledge needed for the management of human affairs comes up spontaneously from the human heart. Where we act on that theory we expose ourselves to self-deception, and to forms of persuasion that we cannot verify. It has ...

WASHINGTON - The U.S. public rejects the idea that the United States should revert to a more isolationist foreign policy, but expresses dissatisfaction with the current role of the U.S. in the world and the destabilising effect it is having, concludes a compilation of recent public opinion polls.. People have the impression that public opinion data gives highly discrepant results and thats really not true. If you take all of the polling data its really quite coherent, PIPA director and WPO editor Steven Kull told IPS. We dont look at polling as a one shot thing, but accumulating a body of knowledge where every piece of data is useful.The compilation, conducted by the Programme on International Policy Attitudes (PIPA) and World Public Opinion (WPO), found that a majority of U.S. citizens support the existence of U.S. military bases in the territory of traditional allies but support is weak for the ongoing military presence in the Middle East.. In July 2006, a Chicago Council on Global ...
The Angus Reid survey found that opinions on whether the current target is too high varied according to voter intention.. Nearly two-thirds of Conservative supporters polled said the target of 331,000 newcomers this year was too high, a view shared by 62 per cent of PPC voters.. Meanwhile, just under 60 per cent of those planning to support the Liberals said they were satisfied with the target and New Democratic Party and Green Party supporters were the most likely to say the target should be higher.. Bloc Québécois voters were nearly evenly divided between those who felt the target of 331,000 is too high (47 per cent) and those who said it was about right (46 per cent).. The survey also found considerable regional divisions across Canada as to whether this years immigration target was acceptable.. Close to half of residents in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba say the number is too high, while Atlantic Canadians, alongside B.C., Ontario and Quebec, are most likely to say the number is ...
If public opinion can swing 12 points simply by Obama and the Democratic congress getting something done over continual GOP obstructionism, what does that say about the depth of so-called public anger against the actual bill? Over the last two days, the non-GOP media has continually explained in detail what the bill actually means for Americans, which may be the first time in this whole debate that the public has focused on the facts behind the bill, rather than the pathetic GOP rhetoric. With a greater understanding of what the bill will do, almost half of the public want Congress to go farther, which is consistent with the results of the Scott Brown election in Massachusetts.. Moreover, if public opinion on an issue can swing that much by Democrats ditching bipartisanship and running over the GOP mob, then shouldnt that be the template for the remainder of 2010?. ...

The 2018 Public Engagement Faculty Fellows are:. Elizabeth Evans, assistant professor, health promotion and policy. Evans studies how the opioid ...
In soft power, China starts from a weak position. Despite major efforts since former President Hu Jintao announced the objective of increasing the countrys soft power at the 17th National Congress in 2007, Beijing has created its own obstacles by exacerbating territorial disputes with neighboring countries and by its insistence on repressive party control, which prevents the full talents of society from being unleashed in the way that happens in democracies. It is not surprising that global public opinion polls and rankings such as the Soft Power 30 rank China low in soft power.It is not surprising that global public opinion polls and rankings such as the Soft Power 30 show China weak in soft power. The top 20 spots in the index are held by democracies.. In hard power, too, the balance favoring the United States will not be changed by the pandemic. Both the U.S. and Chinese economies have been hit hard, as have those of the United States European and East Asian allies. Before the crisis, ...

Thanks!. Arrogantly, this President does not seem to see himself as the U. S. Constitution places him--a temporary employee/servant of the People, but as some supra-Constitutional figure whose judgments are not to be questioned or challenged.. Im reminded of John Quincy Adams remark in his Jubilee Address:. Every change of a President of the United States, has exhibited some variety of policy from that of his predecessor. In more than one case, the change has extended to political and even to moral principle; but the policy of the country has been fashioned far more by the influences of public opinion, and the prevailing humors in the two Houses of Congress, than by the judgment, the will, or the principles of the President of the United States. The President himself is no more than a representative of public opinion at the time of his election; and as public opinion is subject to great and frequent fluctuations, he must accommodate his policy to them; or the people will speedily give him ...
Results from this study are consistent with the findings from other empirical research that there is a high level of public support for biomedical research and willingness to donate HBSs for this purpose.3-5 ,7 ,17-19 However, by presenting participants with scenarios consisting of a variety of HBS types across a number of settings, and by using qualitative as well as quantitative methods, we have been able to build a richer understanding of public attitudes. While it is important to bear in mind that the opinions expressed are hypothetical and therefore do not necessarily correspond with how people would actually behave in practice, they still offer an intriguing insight into public attitudes which can help inform policy and practice.. The general willingness of the UK public to donate residual HBSs is consistent with findings from other studies conducted in the UK, the USA and Scandinavia where willingness to donate varied from 67% to 88%.3-5 ,7 ,17 ,18 Interestingly, people who themselves had ...

Aug 26, 2009. The Health and Human Services Department is asking volunteers on the Web to help assess public opinion on whether to go full speed on vaccinations against the H1N1 virus, also known as swine flu, this fall.. Starting today through Sept. 1, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is sponsoring the four-day H1N1 Public Engagement Dialogue http://www.webdialogues.net/cs/h1n1aug26-aug26-home/view/di/197?x-t=home.view online for volunteers who register and agree to participate.. In this Web-based dialogue the public will discuss, deliberate, and offer input as the CDC considers whether to take a full-throttle or a go-easy approach to mass vaccination, or a moderate approach somewhere in-between, states the CDCs introduction.. The CDC asks participants to review materials on daily discussion topics, and then to comment on a public message board. The dialogue is occurring Aug. 26, 27 and 31 and Sept. 1. Today, 148 participants had registered and 82 comments had been ...

While previous studies have validated vaccine hesitancy scales with uptake behavior at the individual level, the conditions under which aggregated survey data are useful are less clear. We show that vaccine public opinion data aggregated at the subnational level can serve as a valid indicator of aggregate vaccine behaviour. We use a public opinion survey (Eurobarometer EB 91.2) with data on vaccine hesitancy for the EU in 2019. We link this information to (subnational) regional immunization coverage rates for childhood vaccines - DTP3, MCV1, and MCV2 - obtained from the WHO for 2019. We conduct multilevel regression analyses with data for 177 regions in 20 countries. Given the variation in vaccine hesitancy and immunization rates between countries and within countries, we affirm the valuable role that surveys can play as a public health surveillance tool when it comes to vaccine behavior. We find statistically significantly lower regional vaccine immunization rates in regions where vaccine ...

Washington (CNN) -- As President Barack Obama weighs launching a military strike against Syria for its alleged use of chemical weapons, American public opinion over whether the U.S. should get involved appears conflicted.
Roger,. [A response to your 3:57AM comments on public opinion and policy…]. I think you are way too quick to discount the important connection between public opinion and climate policy. In part, our contrasting views stem from some differing assumptions and imperatives between our two sub-disciplines. Yet in this case, I believe the reasoning and the evidence supports my position.. Heres why, starting with relevant examples from welfare and immigration and then moving to climate:. ->The research in political science on the general connection between public opinion and policy is mixed. Some argue that it has a powerful influence; others conclude that the influence of public opinion is really only as a constraint on policy; while others see it as having little or no influence. My answer is that it depends. (For an overview, see Shapiro & Jacobs chapter in Glynn et al. 1999, Public Opinion. Westview Press.). ->Take for example social welfare reform in the mid-1990s, another area where I am ...
The Forestry Commission has conducted similar surveys of public attitudes to forestry and forestry-related issues every two years since 1995. The most recent set of three separate surveys was conducted in 2011; in Scotland, Wales, and across the UK as a whole. The full results are available within the 2011 Public Opinion of Forestry reports available on our website at www.forestry.gov.uk/forestry/infd-5zyl9w.. Questions were asked to gauge the publics agreement on climate change issues, including on the ways in which forests and woodlands can impact on climate change. Some of the public views presented below do not reflect expert opinion.. The highest level of agreement was seen with the statement trees are good because they remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it in wood, with 82% agreeing (Figure 4.3). This compares with only 36% agreeing with the statement using wood for fuel makes climate change worse because it releases carbon dioxide.. Figure 4.3 Public opinion on ways ...

Current risk communication literature includes guidelines regarding crises (1,2). Creating and distributing risk-mitigation information amid a nexus of emotion, public health threats, a journalistic tendency toward sensationalism, and misinformation can be daunting (3,4), which can make general guidelines appealing. We argue here, though, that tension between widely held, preexisting mental models of disease and the circumstances of each new emergent infectious disease offers an underappreciated challenge. By better acknowledging how existing audience mindsets reflect past experiences sometimes at odds with new circumstances, we can move beyond set guidelines to call for formative research, psychologically oriented literature reviews, and social discourse monitoring as crucial steps to address emerging infectious diseases. To support our argument, we offer case evidence regarding public understanding of Zika virus in Guatemala in early 2016.. Any assessment of public health intervention ...

More than 70 % of Russians want to see fewer migrants in their country, a public opinion poll suggests.. Despite the fact that 61% of the polled said they would not mind their children communicating with migrant kids and another 50% came out against creating any special residential areas for labor migrants, most Russians (78%) still want to reduce the migrant influx into Russia, the press service of the Russian Public Opinion Research Center said on Tuesday.. Sixty-three percent of respondents, nearly twice as many in cities than in rural areas (70% and 46%, respectively), said they could feel migrant presence in their populated localities.. Most Russians (67%), according to the pollster, realize that migrants are employed at jobs, which the Russians themselves do not want to do.. As for migrants influence on the socio-economic situation in Russian regions, every third Russian (36%) considers migrants to be a source of additional infusions into the Russian economy (50% of respondents ...

A study, by Dan M. Kahan and his colleagues, collected data on the climate-change risk perceptions of large representative samples of US adults. The study measured assessments of two opposing viewpoints of public opinion on climate change. Science Comprehension thesis (SCT) argues that because the public does not presumably know the information scientists do about climate change, they do not take it as seriously. Cultural cognition thesis (CCT) argues that people tend to form opinions of risk based on their social and cultural group they identify with. CCT model findings: People, who subscribe to a hierarchical, individualistic world-view that ties authority to social rankings and avoids interference with the decisions of such authority, tend to be skeptical of environmental risks. They perceive that widespread acceptance of climate change risks would lead to restrictions on commerce and industry. These are things hierarchical individualists value. In contrast, people who hold an egalitarian, ...

2016 This research investigates potential triggers for loneliness across life stages, focusing on the causes, experiences and impacts of loneliness for six selected groups. It also looks at the support available for people experiencing loneliness, the services people would like, and how they would like that support to be delivered. The research focuses on: young new mums; individuals with mobility limitations; individuals with health issues; individuals who are recently divorced or separated; individuals living without children at home (empty-nesters) and retirees; and the recently bereaved. It also draws on the views of experts and public opinion on loneliness gathered through a survey. The research found that the causes of loneliness of often complex, stemming from a combination of personal, community, and UK-wide factors. It also confirmed that people experiencing life events which can disrupt existing connections or change their role in society are at risk of loneliness. Other factors ...
The Williams Institute, [email protected], (310) 267-4382. Law Impacts Over 336,000 LGBT North Carolinians. LOS ANGELES - By adding to an already challenging legal environment in North Carolina, HB2 could cost the state almost $5 billion a year, according to a new report by the Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law.. The repeal of HB2 would not only reverse the threat to over $5 billion in economic activity for the state, but would also begin to bring North Carolina some of the economic advantages that come when a state embraces diversity and its LGBT citizens, said Christy Mallory, Senior Counsel at the Williams Institute and co-author of the new report.. While prior reports have focused on the potential loss in federal funding to the state, this report examines 9 other harmful economic impacts resulting from HB2. The report also presents new data from North Carolina about the size of the LGBT population, public opinion on LGBT issues, bullying of LGBQ youth, and health ...
This claim has its critics. Other political scientists point out that candidate incumbency itself can often predict elections to a high degree of accuracy. A number of computer scientists (here, here, and here) hold that a true forecast should predict elections out-of-sample (that is, researchers build a model with a certain set of data and use it to predict another separate set of data). As a result, real forecasts must be published before the election. Yet there may be some support for the argument that social media can act as a reliable proxy for public opinion and electoral behavior. The major assumption here is that the electoral preferences of social media and Internet users looks something like the electoral preferences of the electorate. In non-Western or more closed political systems, where polling may be less common or people are less likely to express their true partisan positions to pollsters, social media may be a good indicator of public opinion. Then again, it may also be ...

A new marijuana arrest policy in New York, Americas largest city, is being applauded by civil rights advocates who say it will reduce alleged discrimination against black and Latino youth. Opponents of the old policy say it had negative implications not only for employment and housing opportunities of those arrested, but for the citys law enforcement budget as well. More than 50,000 people were arrested on misdemeanor marijuana charges in New York City last year, enough to fill any local stadium to capacity. Most of them were black or Latino males. Under a 1977 New York State law, possession of any amount of marijuana that is in public view can result in a three-month jail sentence and a $500 fine. City police officers, engaging in a controversial law enforcement technique known as stop-and-frisk, told people to empty their pockets even if they were not suspected of a crime. That would sometimes bring marijuana into public view, which resulted in an arrest. Last week, New York Police ...

Editors note: This article first appeared at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.. After November 2012, the Republican National Committee did a post-mortem. It was clear that the GOP needed to be more welcoming to younger voters, more diverse in its ranks, and more effective in articulating conservative principles to groups disaffected with the Democrats but still unwilling to go Republican.. Unfortunately, the top of the ticket this year (i.e., Donald Trump) fails in all those objectives. And yet, in an election year that has become a nightmare for conservatives, they have a choice here in Western Pennsylvania, smack in the middle of Pittsburgh.. Lenny McAllister is known to many in this area from his face and voice on PCNC and KDKA.

In the 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, French revolutionaries proclaimed the freedom of speech, religion, and opinion. Censorship was abolished, and France appeared to be on a path towards tolerance, pluralism, and civil liberties. A mere four years later, the country descended into a period of political terror, as thousands were arrested, tried, and executed for crimes of expression and opinion.
Overall findings are summarized below, followed by a more detailed analysis of the coverage, categorized by correspondent.. II. Overall Findings 1. Focus The primary focus of the coverage was on accusations of Israeli wrongdoing, human interest stories about Palestinian casualties, condemnations of Israels military campaign and the effect of the campaign on Arab society. Coverage of Israels perspective (found only in Mark Weiss articles) was limited, consisting mainly of Israels military goals and planning, diplomatic negotiations, internal discussions about the ceasefire, and the effect of the upcoming elections. Missing from the coverage was Hamas anti-Israel and anti-Jewish agenda - its charters anti-Semitic content, its rejectiion of a diplomatic end to the conflict, and its goal of seeking to replace a Jewish state with an Islamic caliphate. Also missing was the context of Israels complete withdrawal from Gaza in 2005 - and Hamas decision to use the territory as a launching pad to ...

Objective: In politically contested health debates, stakeholders on both sides present arguments and evidence to influence public opinion and the political agenda. The present study aimed to examine whether stakeholders in the Soft Drinks Industry Levy (SDIL) debate sought to establish or undermine the acceptability of this policy through the news media and how this compared with similar policy debates in relation to tobacco and alcohol industries. Design: Quantitative and qualitative content analysis of newspaper articles discussing sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) taxation published in eleven UK newspapers between 1 April 2015 and 30 November 2016, identified through the Nexis database. Direct stakeholder citations were entered in NVivo to allow inductive thematic analysis and comparison with an established typology of industry stakeholder arguments used by the alcohol and tobacco industries. Setting: UK newspapers. Participants: Proponents and opponents of SSB tax/SDIL cited in UK newspapers. ...
The majority of residents in Halton and the Greater Toronto Area say local hospitals dont receive a fair share of provincial funding and that the quality of health care has declined because of underfunding, according to a recent poll. The public opinion survey of 500 adults, conducted between March 5 and 14 by Léger Marketing and Redfern Research, also found that more than half of the residents in Halton, Durham, Peel and York say the issue of improving local access to health care will be very important in how they vote in the next provincial election. A further 37 per cent say it will be at least somewhat important. GTA/905 residents believe that it is time for the government to address the underfunding issue, said Kirk Corkery, chair of the GTA/905 Healthcare Alliance. I think many people will be disappointed if the government doesnt respond to what is obviously a key concern for more than one quarter of the population of the province. Other key findings of the survey reveal that among ...
Downloadable! The relationship between trust in government and factors that accounts for Nigerians citizen trust in their government has been of interest due a dearth of literature on such issue. This study is an attempt to bridge the gap from a public policy perspective. One of the measures usually used in the literature to measure trust or distrust in government is perception of corruption, but there are other yardsticks with which to measure determinant of trust in government, such as economic performance or political participation. This study used a micro-level analysis of public opinion survey data (question by question) to ascertain empirical linkages of political trust within Nigeria. To this end, Afrobarometer survey Round Four conducted in 2008 was used for the analyses. Descriptive statistics provide background information on the sample, while multivariate logistic regression using SPSS were used to model the citizens trust for government in Nigeria. This study revealed that political trust

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon took to the road Tuesday to defend his controversial proposal to uproot nearly all Jewish settlements in the Gaza Strip, and he was reported to be considering a plan to redraw Israels border to exclude tens of thousands of its Arab citizens, turning them over to a Palestinian state in a future peace accord. The senior official, speaking to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity, singled out an area called the triangle, a territory in the northern part of the country that includes Um el-Fahm, a town of 30,000 and power base of the radical arm of the Islamic Movement. A public opinion survey published Tuesday, one day after news of the proposal became public, indicated that most Israelis are prepared to relinquish the seaside enclave, where an estimated 7,500 Jewish settlers live among more than 1.2 million Palestinians. The militant groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad, for their part, gloated over what they called evidence of Israeli capitulation -- striking a raw
Listening to the poor deepens the wisdom of nations. We must look at things from the perspective of those who are directly affected, advises Mahbub ul Haq, founder of the Human Development Index. On this basis, UNDP, with the help of TECHO, conducted fieldwork in 20 poor communities in El Salvador and recently published its findings in the report Poverty in El Salvador from the Perspective of its Protagonists (link in Spanish). Contrary to what public opinion polls reveal, when poorer communities themselves were asked to identify the countrys main problem, their response was the poverty in which they live. When asked what living in poverty meant to them, most people agreed on three points: Look at what we eat, said a woman, referring to her diet, which consists of salt, tortillas, beans and rice. She noted that her family was often unable to eat three times a day and had to skip meals. When things become serious, even if I cant eat, I try to make sure that at least my children can. ...
Members of the general public and state decision-makers often perceive information regarding water use in agriculture differently. This is an issue in Florida where water quantity is a concern, and the distribution of accurate knowledge will be necessary to assist in effective conservation efforts. This study was conducted to gain insight into Florida resident and state decision maker perceptions of water use associated with specific agricultural-related operations. An online public opinion survey was sent to Florida residents and Florida decision makers and, after removing responses for missing data, a total of 525 residents and 169 decision makers responses were analyzed. Although the survey contained questions pertaining to many facets of water quality and quantity, only the section on perceived water use pertaining to specific agricultural operations was utilized in this analysis. Applying a visual semiotics-individual framing study design, participants were asked to state whether they ...
IAPWA recently conducted a public opinion survey to better understand peoples perception towards street dogs in Kota Kinabalu.. All those surveyed agreed that there was a stray dog problem in the city and wanted to see a reduction in the number of strays on the streets of Kota Kinabalu. Many viewed the dogs as being a nuisance and the majority of complaints related to noise, fouling and disturbing rubbish bags outside properties while the dogs tried to find something to eat.. Although all of those surveyed wanted the street dogs to be neutered and rehomed, no one who took part in the research said they would be open to rehoming a dog and this highlights the imbalance with what people define as being the ideal solution and the reality.. This is where the challenge lies as IAPWA now needs to increase the number of people looking to rehome whilst also improving the perception of stray dogs on the street.. It also remains an ongoing challenge to ensure the welfare of each dog it releases back to ...

VTR: 1/12/84. Im Richard Heffner, your host on THE OPEN MIND. And I would comment once again on what an enormous luxury it is to be able comfortably to sit with a colleague or new-found friend, debate with him on topics that at least seem to loom large in our times, and then to invite him here so that we can share our differences somewhat more publicly.. A senior writer at Time magazine, Roger Rosenblatt has graced it with dozens of essays that are themselves the epitome of grace and style as well as content. Well, recently we talked here on THE OPEN MIND about this brilliant journalist/essayists profoundly touching new book on The Children of War. And then later we came upon our debate about the right stuff and the wrong stuff in contemporary journalism. Mostly because its practitioners loom so large in the molding of our public attitudes, our public opinion, and I at least, think, in the process too often go astray by ignoring their responsibility to act like historians, albeit of the ...
Macedonia Considers Legalising Medical Marijuana; Macedonians health ministry says it is seriously listening to expert opinion about the possible legalisation of marijuana for medical purposes after a poll indicated widespread public support.

Insurance claims professionals often are the second people on the scene after a natural disaster, arriving right after the first responders. In fact, insurers are often considered the economic first responders - because it is insurance that fuels recovery.. After you call in your insurance claim, a claims adjuster will be assigned to you. This professional investigates and evaluates your loss and helps you get insurance funds to settle your claim. While some insurers may use a single adjuster, others may prefer to use certain specialists. That means you could have more than one claims adjuster assigned to assist with filing a claim after a disaster.. For example, you may have someone meet you at your property who is an expert in construction and structural damage.

Public awareness of government work to reduce, replace and refine the use of animals in research remains low. In every year of surveying the public, very few respondents feel they know either a fair amount or a great deal about the governments work to:. a. Replace the use of animals with non-animal methods, such as computational models. b. Reduce the number of animals used in research, for example by improving the design of experiments or sharing the results. c. Refine the use of animals in research to improve animal welfare, for example by developing non-invasive methods and improving how the animals are kept. Table 2.1: Ipsos MORI , Public attitudes to animal research - 2018 report - Page 23.

It seems almost every week there are new revelations about Facebooks data use and sharing policies. The Federal Trade Commission is currently investigating Facebook for a potential consent decree violation related to the release of user data to Cambridge Analytica. The new allegations of data misuse in the New York Times this week may also be a violation of the consent decree. They are at least worthy of FTC investigation. And the cache of previously sealed litigation documents published by a British Member of Parliament earlier this month seem to indicate that Facebook may have been strategically withholding this valuable data from strategic competitors such as upstart Vine. Taken together, the two stories paint a frightening picture. Was Facebook granting access to private user data to cement its market position, offering it up to the powerful and wielding it as a cudgel against potential competitors? At the close of the current investigation, the FTC should demand remedies that protect ...

Focus groups, conducted in six cities, included 141 adults of different ages, incomes, genders, ethnicities, and races. Many of the concerns expressed by participants mirrored those ...
A lot of policymakers and commentators are speculating about what this weeks elections will mean for U.S. efforts to address climate change at home and abroad. The shift in control of the U.S. Senate means that GOP leaders will likely try block President Obamas actions under laws like the Clean Air Act to curb the carbon pollution that is driving dangerous climate change (as NRDCs President outlined). But their efforts are not likely to succeed, and the election outcome doesnt radically change the landscape for what the U.S. can deliver next year in international negotiations.. Despite these off-year election results in more conservative regions of the country, there is stronger public opinion polling evidence than ever that the public supports U.S. climate action. A growing chorus of leading American businesses has been calling for urgent action. So, President Obama has the backing to deeply engage in international efforts to combat climate change - it is what the American public and ...
