Private or Public Health Care

Short Description: The overall objective is to examine whether the public/private divide in health insurance as well as changes in the boundary between public and private health care explain variations in the individual evaluation of, satisfaction with, and normative attitudes towards the health care system; and also to investigate to what extent these attitudes and evaluations spillover into attitudes about social solidarity.

Methodological Details: 12 self-report items, e.g., “How satisfied are you with the availability of general practitioners in Germany?” and “How satisfied are you with the amount of your contributions for statutory or private health insurance?”
