​​2017 Member Health Survey Findings

The Member Health Survey, conducted by the Division of Research for Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC), provides a wealth of information on our member demographics, self-reported health status, health services and education utilization, and health-related behaviors.

The survey is conducted with a stratified random sample of English-speaking adult members who completed an online or mailed questionnaire. Details about the 2017 study sample and response rates can be found in the reports.

Note: The methods used to select the 2017 survey sample and create the weighting factors to the KPNC membership differ from those used previously. As a result, estimates from the 2017 survey are not directly comparable with those from previous years.
