American Health

"A new addition to the American Consumers Series, and a more comprehensive replacement for the discontinued Best of Health, American Health: Demographics and Spending of Health Care Consumers focuses on health care consumers rather than industry statistics and reveals future market and policy needs.

Presenting more than twice as many tables as contained in the popular Health, United States, American Health's 14 chapters examine addictions, aging, alternative medicine, attitudes toward health care, births, deaths, disability, disease s and conditions, health care coverage and cost, health care visits, hospital care, mental health, sexual attitudes and behavior, weight and exercise—the whole gamut of our physical and mental well-being.

An added bonus for researchers is the inclusion of data from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey on health care spending by type of service.

Understanding who health care consumers are and how they are changing is vital to health insurance companies, hospitals, doctors, pharmaceutical companies, government policymakers, and many others."
