  • Description:
    According to data collected in the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS), an estimated 11 million visits to office-based physicians included a family planning service, either as one of the stated purposes of the visit or as an adjunct service when patients visited for other problems.

    The NAMCS is a sample survey conducted annually by the Division of Health Resources Utilization Statistics in the National Center for Health Statistics. The estimates in this report are based on information recorded by participating physicians on brief encounter forms (Patient Record, see Advance Data No. 48, April 13, 1979) during sample office visits. A brief description of the sample design and an explanation of the sampling errors associated with selected aggregate statistics may be found in the Technical Notes of this report.
