  • Description:
    Using data from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS), this report describes an estimated 20,728,000 visits made to the offices of urologists over the 2-year span from January 1975 through December 1976. NAMCS is a sample survey designed to explore the provision and utilization of ambulatory care in the physician’s office-the setting where most Americans seek health care. The survey is conducted yeady throughout the coteminous United States by the Division of Health Resources Utilization Statistics of the NationaI Center for HeaIth Statistics. The survey sample is selected from doctors of medicine and osteopathy who are principally engaged in office-based, patient-care practice. Excluded from the sample are an indeterminate number of physi­ cians who render some office-based ambulatory care but whose patient-care activities are secondary to another primary role such as teaching, research, or administration. AIso excIuded from the NAMCS scope are physicians who are hospital based; those whose specialty is anesthesiology, pathology, or radiology; and physicians in Federal service.
