  • Description:
    Using data from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS), this report describes an estimated 46.9 million visits made by ambulatory patients to the offices of osteopathic physicians in 1975. The NAMCS is a sample survey designed to explore the provision and utilization of ambulatory medical care in the offices of physicians practicing within the conterminous United States. It is conducted yearly by the National Center for Health Statistics. The survey sample is selected from doctors of medicine and osteopathy (M.D.’s and D.O.’s) who are primarily engaged in office-based, patient-care practice. It excludes physicians whose specialties are anesthesiology, pathology, and radiology and all physicians in Federal service. The 1975 sample consisted of 3,507 physicians, of whom 141 were doctors of osteopathy. For the week of their participation in the NAMCS, physicians collected information on a sample of their office visits. Participants averaged about 30 visit reports per physician. Response rate was about 80 percent among eligible doctors of osteopathy.
