Abstract:

Although health care spending represents one of the largest expenditure categories in all Western societies, most research on the welfare state has neglected issues related to health and health care. In this paper, we use the ISSP to evaluate the public attitudes towards health care in the United States, Australia, Germany, Great Britain, and Italy at three points in time. We find that public attitude do not cluster according to the most widely used schemes to classify welfare states which is not surprising given that these nations have often been clustered together without paying attention to health care. The results also indicate that the cleavages that are most influential in dividing individual health outcomes are an important predictor of people’s attitudes towards government involvement in health care. In general, groups who have been shown to experience worse health in modern society are more supportive of government involvement in health care whereas groups experiencing better health are generally less supportive.
