  • Description:
    According to data collected in the National Ambulatory h4edical Care Survey (NAMCS), an estimated 234,660,000 visits were made to the o f f ices of general and famiIy practitioners (GFP’s) during calendar year 1975. These visits accounted for over 41 percent of the estimated 567.6 million visits made to all office-based physicians in 1975.

    The NAMCS is a sample survey designed to explore the provision and utilization of ambula­ tory care in the physician’s office-the setting where most Americans seek health care. The survey is conducted yearly over the coterminous United States by the Division of Health Resources Utilization Statistics of the National Center for Health Statistics. The survey sample is selected from doctors of medicine and osteopathy who are engaged in office-based, patient care practice. In its current scope, the NAMCS excludes physicians practicing in AIaska and Hawaii, physicians whose specialty is anesthesiology, pathology, or radiology, and physicians in Government service.
