This report is a deep dive into some of the data USofCare has gathered over the last two years through a variety of methods with thousands of adults living across the United States. USofCare’s research cuts across the challenges people face with the health care system and the solutions people want to prioritize to solve them. For the purposes of this report, we examined the data specific to inequities that came up in our various methodologies, from community conversations, focus groups, and public opinion polling.
