Summary

North Carolinians' perceptions of the seriousness of the health care problem and their willingness to allocate additional tax money for health and medical care were examined. The analysis consisted of: (1) What is the health manpower facilities situation in different parts of North Carolina? (2) Does the people's perception of the situation's seriousness correspond with the availability of medical manpower and facilities? (3) Who is most concerned about medical manpower and facilities? and (4) How do these relate to people's willingness to allocate additional tax money for health and medical care? Data were gathered in a Statewide survey during April and May 1973 from 3,115 household heads out of 4,470 potential respondents. Health manpower and facilities were measured by the number of people per physician and per hospital bed. Some findings were: (1) people in rural areas were more concerned about the availability of medical facilities and staff than people in more urban areas; and (2) people in rural areas did not express a greater willingness than urban people for allocating additional tax money for health and medical care programs. The definition of health, the national situation, and a comparison of the national situation with that in North Carolina are briefly discussed. (NQ)
