As part of the Foundation’s commitment to producing timely health information for policymakers, health officials and local decision makers, the Foundation sponsors an annual telephone opinion poll of Kentucky adults called the Kentucky Health Issues Poll (KHIP).

KHIP provides a snapshot of Kentuckians' views on various health related topics. KHIP has been conducted annually in the fall since 2008, and the results are released periodically in reports throughout the following six to eight months.

The poll is funded jointly by the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky and Interact for Health and conducted by the Institute for Policy Research at the University of Cincinnati.

Highlights from the most recent KHIP are available below. Users can also access the entire survey dataset, full survey questions, as well as results by region or demographic group, from the Online Analysis and Statistical Information System (OASIS)
