Article of the Week
Vaccine attitude rises and falls with ideology
Three members of the political science faculty at the University of Idaho recently published a paper examining the link between self-reported political ideology and the decision to vaccinate. Survey respondents were asked whether they would vaccinate against three different diseases (whooping cough, measles, and the flu). They found that people with strong conservative views were less likely to vaccinate than were individuals with strong liberal views. In addition, the researchers stated that their findings suggest that participants' trust levels impact ideology and, in turn, the decision to vaccinate.
