Abstract

This study examined Korean Americans' evaluation and use of online advertising and non-advertising sources of prescription drug information and compared the findings to those of white Americans. A mail survey was conducted with a disproportionate stratified sample of 600 adults (300 general population and 300 Korean Americans) who have ever taken or are currently taking prescription drugs regularly and reside in a metropolitan area in the Midwestern United States. While both Korean and white Americans evaluated online non-advertising sources more positively than advertising sources, the 2 groups were similar in their evaluation of both online advertising and non-advertising sources. White Americans tended to use more online advertising sources than did Korean Americans, but both groups were equally likely to use non-advertising sources. Evaluation and use of online advertising and non-advertising sources by Korean and white Americans were associated with different predictors.
