  • Can explore subgroups such as the uninsured and those with lower incomes, but are unable to break out other groups such as those with non-group coverage


  • Does the general public have a favorable or unfavorable view of the ACA?

  • How do they perceive the law is impacting them, if at all?

  • Do they think they have enough information to understand how the law affects them?

  • Are they aware of the law’s provisions? How do they feel about them?

  • What future directions would they like to see the law take?

  • What’s the public’s perception of media coverage of the law?
