University of Washington Survey on Health-related Attitudes of Washington Residents (UW SHARE)

UW SHARE is a representative mail survey of 18-64 years old residents of the Washington State. It is being conducted during December 2013-January 2014. The purpose of the mail survey is to obtain a comprehensive assessment of the state residents' health, access to health insurance, and health care use. The goal is to have a better understanding of the potential impact of Affordable Care Act - also called "Obamacare" - for the State of Washington.

About 40,000 resident households with at least one person between 18-64 years of age were selected at random from the publicly available list of registered voters in Washington State that contained about 4 million registered voters. Residents in some of the smaller counties were oversampled in order to obtain county-level estimates from our data.

Summary results using data from these surveys will be made publicly available on this website. Below, we present some of the frequently asked questions regarding this survey.
