I have created this web page to ask your help in developing a scale to measure attitudes toward rationing health care. This scale would help to explore how much health care people think that our society should provide, especially in the case of health care treatments that are very costly. To develop this scale, it is important that a diverse group of people answer this questionnaire. Although the group of people who answer the questionnaire do not need to be representative of the population as a whole, they would ideally have a wide range of attitudes toward this issue. It will probably take you about ten or fifteen minutes to fill our this questionnaire. This questionnaire is completely anonymous. If you received a PIN number with your gift, it was dispersed randomly and is not linked to you in any way. If you have any questions or comments about this questionnaire, please feel free to contact me by e-mail or telephone, or to write to the address above. If you would like to know the results of this research, please notify me at mcnamatd@bc.edu and I will provide you with a summary of the findings. Thank you very much for your help.
