Affordable Prescription Drugs: A Survey of South Dakota Members

AARP Member Opinion Research

Key findings from a mail survey of AARP members in South Dakota about the affordability of their prescription drugs and their support for a state-funded prescription drug assistance program for seniors with low and moderate incomes revealed that...

  • 78 percent consider it very important that the state do something to make prescription drugs more affordable for those in need.
  • 60 percent support legislation funding a prescription drug assistance program for seniors with low and moderate incomes, even if the respondent would not be personally eligible
  • 77 percent support reallocating state funds to pass the prescription assistance program that was under consideration in 2002
  • 51 percent would be more likely to vote for a candidate for South Dakota office who supports reallocating state monies to fund a prescription drug assistance program

During July 2002, a random selection of 1,434 AARP members in South Dakota were surveyed by mail. The report was written by Mildred DePallo, Ph.D. For further information, please contact Gretchen Straw at 202-434-6334.
