[VISIT]      VISIT NUMBER 

 This variable is a sequential number used, in combination with PROVID,
 to uniquely identify the provider visit record.  For a count of the 
 number of visits per provider, refer to the Live Birth respondent file, 
 variables PROV1_VS through PROV7_VS.  For example, "3" refers to the 
 fact that 7,270 visits were the third visit reported by providers and 
 hospitals.  The analyst who wishes to calculate the number of visits 
 per provider should refer to Section 5 in Part II of the manual.
