Biomedical Literacy in the United States: Exploring the borderland between science and citizenship
Unformatted Document Text:  14 compelling need for longitudinal studies in communication research and this result argues for more effort to launch thoughtful longitudinal studies. Finally, it should be noted that the second model was able to explain nearly half of the variance in policy contacting on health and biomedical issues without any variables to measure overt mobilization efforts by interest groups, religious views and activity, targeted information campaigns, or personal health experiences and needs – all of which would have enhanced the predictive power of the model. This level of prediction was obtained by combining demographic, educational, attitudinal, knowledge, and communication use variables in a sequence of relationships that mirror the life cycle. Models that incorporate this range of variables are rare in the communication literature, and that may be another border that needs to be opened.

compelling need for longitudinal studies in communication research and this result argues for more effort
to launch thoughtful longitudinal studies.
Finally, it should be noted that the second model was able to explain nearly half of the variance in
policy contacting on health and biomedical issues without any variables to measure overt mobilization
efforts by interest groups, religious views and activity, targeted information campaigns, or personal health
experiences and needs – all of which would have enhanced the predictive power of the model. This level
of prediction was obtained by combining demographic, educational, attitudinal, knowledge, and
communication use variables in a sequence of relationships that mirror the life cycle. Models that
incorporate this range of variables are rare in the communication literature, and that may be another
border that needs to be opened.
