The Survey on Race and Health, a joint project between KFF and ESPN’s The Undefeated, explores the public’s views and experiences on the topics of health care, racial discrimination, and the coronavirus pandemic, with a special focus on Black adults, a group that has borne a disproportionate burden of COVID-19 cases and deaths. This survey of 1,769 U.S. adults includes an oversample of 777 Black Americans to allow for in-depth reporting among this group, as well as comparison groups of White and Hispanic adults. This project focuses on African Americans’ views and experiences of being Black in America, including views of unconscious bias and structural racism; experiences of discrimination within and outside of health care settings; trust in the health care system; the social and economic impacts of the pandemic; and views of a potential coronavirus vaccine.
A complete analytical report based on the full survey will be available Wednesday.
