  • Description:
    Due to increasing concern over many prob­ lems surrounding the accessibility of health care, particularly ambulatory care, there is a need for information to answer the following kinds of questions: How many Americans have a regular source of care? What reasons do people give for not having a regular source of care? To what specific types of health care places do people with a regular source of care usually go? Whether or not people have a regular source of care, to what extent do they contact office-based sources of care as contrasted to hospital-based sources or clinics that are not associated with hospitals? What proportion of the popula­ tion uses a telephone to get help or advice about a health problem? How many Americans have a doctor visit them at home? How many Ameri­ cans have problems getting medical care? Do people feel that they are getting all the care they need? This report presents data that bear directly on these questions. Information was obtained from a one-third subsample of respondents to the 1974 Health Interview Survey who reported for themselves or for a child under 17 years of age. ad017acc.pdf
