2Introduction

 This Micro-Data Tape comprises the data collected by the National
 Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS) in 1989, conducted by the National
 Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).  The National Ambulatory Medical Care
 Survey provides data from samples of patient records selected from a
 national sample of office-based physicians.  These national estimates
 describe the utilization of ambulatory medical care services in the United
 States.  In 1990 there were approximately 43,469 patient records provided
 by 1,684 doctors that participated in the survey.  For a brief description
 of the survey design and data collection procedures, see below.  For a more
 detailed description of the survey design, data collection procedures, and
 the estimation process see references 1 and 2.

 There are two important points relative to analyzing data from this
 micro-data tape that should be noted:

     1-Micro-data tape users should be fully aware of the importance of
       the "patient weight" and how it must be used.  Information about
       the patient weight is presented on page 13.  If more information is
       needed the staff of the Ambulatory Care Statistics Branch can be
       consulted by calling 301/436-7132 during regular working hours.

     2-Users should also be aware of the reliability or unreliability of
       certain estimates, particularly the smaller estimates.  The
       National Center for Health Statistics, which conducts many health
       surveys of the American people, considers an estimate to be
       reliable if it has a relative standard error of 30% or less.
       Therefore, it is important to know the value of the lowest
       possible estimate in this survey that is considered reliable, so as
       not to present data in a journal article or paper that may be
       unreliable.  Most data tape users can obtain an adequate working
       knowledge of the relative standard error from the information
       presented in the Appendix.  If you would like more information, do
       not hesitate to consult the staff of the Ambulatory Care Statistics
       Branch.


METHODOLOGY

Scope of the Survey

 The basic sampling unit for the NAMCS is the physician-patient encounter
 or visit.  Only visits in the offices of nonfederally employed physicians
 classified by the American Medical Association (AMA) or the American
 Osteopathic Association (AOA) as "office-based, patient care" were
 included in the 1990 NAMCS.  In addition, physicians in the specialties
 of anesthesiology, pathology, and radiology were excluded from the
 physician universe.  Major types of ambulatory encounters not included in
 the 1990 NAMCS were those made by telephone, those made outside of the
 physician's office, and those made in hospital or institutional settings.

Sampling Frame and Size of Sample

 The sampling frame for the 1990 NAMCS was composed of all physicians
 contained in the master files maintained by the AMA and AOA as of
 December 31, 1989, who met the following criteria:

     Office-based, as defined by the AMA and AOA:

     Principally engaged in patient care activities;

     Nonfederally employed;

     Not in specialties of anesthesiology, pathology, and radiology.

 The 1990 NAMCS sample included 3,063 physicians:  2,770 MD's and
 293 doctors of osteopathy.  Sample physicians were screened at the time
 of the survey to assure that they met the above-mentioned criteria, 794
 physicians did not meet all of the criteria and were, therefore, ruled
 out of scope (ineligible) for the study.  The most frequent reasons for
 being out of scope were that the physician was retired, deceased, or
 employed in teaching, research, or administration.  Of the 2,269 in-scope
 (eligible) physicians, 74 percent, participated in the study.  The
 physician universe, sample size, and response rates by physician
 specialty are shown in table I.  Of the participating physicians, 237 saw
 no patients during their assigned reporting period because of vacations,
 illness, or other reasons for being temporarily not in practice.

Sample Design

 The 1990 NAMCS utilized a multistage probability design that involved
 probability samples of primary sampling units (PSU's), physician
 practices within PSU's, and patient visits within practices.  The
 first-stage sample included 112 PSU's.  A PSU is a county, a group of
 adjacent counties, or a standard metropolitan statistical area (SMSA).

 The second stage consisted of a probability sample of practicing
 physicians selected from the master files maintained by the American
 Medical Association (AMA) and American Osteopathic Association (AOA).
 Within each PSU, all eligible physicians were stratified by fifteen
 specialty groups:  general and family practice, osteopathy, internal
 medicine, pediatrics, general surgery, obstetrics and gynecology,
 orthopedic surgery, cardiovascular disease, dermatology, urology,
 psychiatry, neurology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, and all other
 specialties.

 The final stage was the selection of patient visits within the annual
 practices of sample physicians.  This involved two steps.  First,
 the total physician sample was divided into 52 random subsamples of
 approximately equal size, and each subsample was randomly assigned to 1
 of the 52 weeks in the survey year.  Second, a systematic random sample
 of visits was selected by the physician during the assigned week.  The
 sampling rate varied for this final step from a 100-percent sample for
 very small practices to a 20-percent sample for very large practices as
 determined in a presurvey interview.  The method by which the sampling
 rate was determined is described in reference 3.

Field Activities

 The first contact with the sample physician is through a letter from the
 Director, NCHS, which may be accompanied by a letter from one of the 16
 national medical associations that endorse the NAMCS providing the
 physician is a member of one or more of these associations.  After the
 physician has received the introductory letter(s) the field representative
 telephones the physician to set up an appointment with him or her to
 discuss the survey and instruct the doctor on how to complete the forms.

Data Collection

 The actual data collection for the NAMCS was carried out by the physician
 aided by his office staff when possible.  Two data collection forms were
 employed by the physician:  The Patient Log and the Patient Record
 (Figure 1).  The Patient Log is used to sequentially list patients seen
 in the physician's office during his assigned reporting week.  This list
 served as the sampling frame to indicate the visit for which data were to
 be recorded.  A perforation between the patient names and patient visit
 characteristics permitted the physician to remove patient names and
 protect confidentiality.

 Based on the physician's estimate of the expected number of office visits
 each physician was assigned a patient-sampling ratio.  These ratios were
 designed so that about 30 Patient Records were completed during the
 assigned reporting week.  Physicians expecting 10 or fewer visits each
 day recorded data for all of them, while those expecting more than 10
 visits per day recorded data for every second, third, or fifth visit
 based on the predetermined sampling interval.  These procedures minimized
 the data collection workload and maintained approximately equal reporting
 levels among sample physicians regardless of practice size.  For
 physicians assigned a patient sampling ratio, a random start was provided
 on the first page of the log, so that predesignated sample visits on each
 succeeding page of the log provided a systematic random sample of patient
 visits during the reporting period.

Data Processing

 In addition to the completeness checks made by the field staff, clerical
 edits were performed upon receipt of the data for central processing.
 These procedures proved quite efficient, reducing the item nonresponse
 rates to a negligible amount--6 percent or less for all data items.

 Information from the Induction Interview and Patient Record was
 keypunched, with 100-percent verification and converted to computer tape.
 Extensive computer consistency and edit checks were also performed.  Data
 items still unanswered at this point were imputed by randomly assigning a
 value from a Patient Record with similar characteristics; imputations
 were based on physician specialty and broad diagnostic categories.

Medical Coding

 The patient record form contains three medical items, each of which
 requires a separate coding system.  The three coding systems are
 described briefly below.  A two-way independent verification procedure
 was used to control the medical coding operation.  Differences between
 coders were adjudicated by a third coder.  Definitions of the three
 medical items are on pages 31 and 33 of this documentation.

     (A)  Patient's Reason for Visit:  Information contained in
     item 9 (patient's reason for visit) of the Patient Record
     was coded according to an updated version of A Reason for Visit
     Classification for Ambulatory Care (RVC).4/  The updated classification
     has not been published as of this writing but the list of codes is
     contained in Appendix II.  The classification was updated to
     incorporate several new codes as well as changes to existing codes.
     The system continues to utilize a modular structure composed of seven
     modules.  The digits 1 through 8 precede the 3-digit RVC codes
     to identify the various modules as follows:


          Prefix           Module

            "1" = symptom module

            "2" = disease module

            "3" = diagnostic, screening, and preventive module

            "4" = treatment module

            "5" = injuries and adverse effects module

            "6" = test results module

            "7" = administrative module

            "8" = Uncodable entries

            "9" = special code = blank

     A maximum of 3 reasons were coded, in sequence; coding
     instructions concerning the patient reason for visit are
     contained in the NAMCS Medical Coding Manual.7/  Copies are
     available upon request.

     (B)  Physician's Diagnoses:  Diagnostic information in
     item 10 of the Patient Record was coded according to the
     International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision,
     Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM).5/  For 1990 NAMCS
     micro-data tape tabulations involving principal diagnoses,
     the following characteristics exist:

       1.  The prefix "1" preceding the diagnostic codes has
           been added to identify all codes in the range
           001.00-999.90, e.g. '138100' = '381.00' = Acute
           nonsupporative otitis media, unspecified.

       2.  The prefix "20" preceding diagnostic codes
           represents V code diagnoses V01.00-V82.90, e.g.
           '201081' = 'V10.81' = personal history of malignant
           neoplasm of bone.  In other words, change the "20"
           to "V."

           NOTE:  The use of prefixes facilitates the
                  calculation of percent distributions, while
                  substituting "20" for the letter "V" allows
                  that all diagnostic fields on the data tape will
                  contain numerical data.

       3.  In addition to the diagnostic codes from the
           ICD-9-CM there are 3 unique codes in the diagnostic
           fields that were developed by the NAMCS staff:

             209900 = - noncodable diagnosis
                      - insufficient information for coding
                      - illegible diagnosis

             209970 =   diagnosis of "none"

             900000 =   blank diagnosis

       A maximum of three diagnoses were coded in sequence:
       coding instructions concerning diagnoses are contained
       in the NAMCS Medical Coding Manual.7/


     (C)  Medication Therapy This Visit:  The NAMCS drug data
     in item 15 have been classified and coded according to a
     unique classification scheme6/ developed at NCHS.  A list
     of the drug codes are in Appendix III.  The patient record
     form allows for the recording of up to 5 drugs.  The tape
     format includes a corresponding allocation of drug fields.

 More complete coding lists and instructions for using the NAMCS 1990 drug
 information are contained in the publication entitled:  "The Collection
 and Processing of Drug Information, National Ambulatory Medical Care
 Survey, United States, 1980."8/  Copies are available upon request.

 It should be noted that a substantial amount of information concerning
 each drug is not contained in these data.  This additional drug
 information is contained in a special NAMCS Drug File and is available as
 a separate micro-data tape.*  For information on ordering the micro-data
 tape for drugs, interested persons should contact the Ambulatory Care
 Statistics Branch, Division of Health Care Statistics, Room 9-52, 6525
 Belcrest Road, Hyattsville, Maryland 20782.  The telephone number is
 301/436-7132.


     POPULATION FIGURES

     The base population used in computing annual visit rates is
     presented in table II.  These figures are based on provisional
     estimates for the civilian noninstitutionalized population as
     of July 1, 1990, provided by the U.S. Bureau of the Census.
     The population estimates are presented here solely for the
     purpose of providing denominators for rate computation and
     should not be considered as official population estimates.



   *It should be noted, however, that it is not possible to link the
    information on the drug file with the information on the patient file.

     ESTIMATION PROCEDURES

     Statistics produced from the 1990 National Ambulatory Medical
     Care Survey were derived by a multistage estimating procedure.
     The procedure produces essentially unbiased national estimates
     and has basically three components:  (1) inflation by
     reciprocals of the probabilities of selection, (2) adjustment
     for nonresponse, and (3) a ratio adjustment to fixed totals.
     Each of these components is described briefly below.

              (1)  INFLATION BY RECIPROCALS OF SAMPLING
              PROBABILITIES.--Since the survey utilized a
              three-stage sample design, there were three
              probabilities:  (A)  The probability of
              selecting the PSU, (B) the probability of
              selecting a physician within the PSU, and
              (C) the probability of selecting a patient
              visit within the physician's practice.  The
              last probability was defined to be the
              exact number of office visits during the
              physician's specified reporting week
              divided by the number of Patient Records
              completed.  All weekly estimates were
              inflated by a factor of 52 to derive annual
              estimates.

              (2)  ADJUSTMENT FOR NONRESPONSE--Estimates
              from the NAMCS data were adjusted to
              account for sample physicians who did not
              participate in the study.  This was done in
              such a manner as to minimize the impact of
              nonresponse on final estimates by imputing
              to nonresponding physicians the practice
              characteristics of similar responding
              physicians.  For this purpose, similar
              physicians were judged to be physicians
              having the same specialty designation and
              practicing in the same PSU.

              (3)  RATIO-ADJUSTMENT.--A
              poststratification adjustment was made
              within each of fifteen physician specialty
              groups.  The ratio adjustment is a
              multiplication factor which had as its
              numerator the number of physicians in the
              universe in each physician specialty group,
              and as its denominator the estimated number
              of physicians in that particular specialty
              group.  The numerator was based on figures
              obtained from the AMA-AOA master files, and
              the denominator was based on data from the
              sample.

     SAMPLING ERRORS

     Procedures for calculating sampling errors as well as
     estimates of standard errors of statistics derived from
     the NAMCS are described in the technical notes of
     reference 2 or 10, as well as Appendix I of this document.


     PATIENT WEIGHT

     The "patient weight" is a vital component in the
     process of producing national estimates from sample data
     and its use should be clearly understood by all micro-data
     tape users.  The statistics contained on the micro-data
     tape reflect data concerning only a sample of patient
     visits--and not a complete count of all the visits that
     occurred in the United States.  Each record on the data tape
     represents one visit in the sample of 43,469 visits.  In
     order to obtain national estimates from the sample, each
     record is assigned an inflation factor called the "patient
     weight".

     By aggregating the "patient weights" on the 43,469 sample
     records for 1990 the user can obtain the total of 704,603,932
     estimated visits made by all patients in the United States.

     The marginal tables on pages 23 to 27 contain data on numbers
     of records for selected variables as well as the corresponding
     national estimated number of visits obtained by aggregating
     the "patient weights" on those records.

RECORD LAYOUT

 General Information

 This section consists of a detailed breakdown of each tape record, providing
 a brief description of each item of data included in the records.  The data
 are arranged sequentially according to their physical location on the tape
 record.  Unless otherwise stated in the "Item description" column, the data
 are derived from the patient record (Page 9).  The AMA and the induction
 interview (reference 3) are alternate sources of data, while the computer
 generates other items by recoding selected data items.

 Record Layout

 This section consists of a detailed breakdown of each tape record, providing
 a brief description of each item of data included in the records.  The data
 are arranged sequentially according to their physical location on the tape
 record.  Unless otherwise stated in the "Item description" column, the data
 are derived from the patient record (Page 7).  The AMA and the induction
 interview (reference 3) are alternate sources of data, while the computer
 generates other items by recoding selected data items.

 Appendix I

   Provisional Relative Standard Errors

   The standard error is primarily a measure of the sampling variability that
 occurs by chance because only a sample is surveyed, rather than the entire
 universe.  The relative standard error (R.S.E.) of an estimate is obtained
 by dividing the standard error of the estimate by the estimate itself and
 is expressed as a percentage of the estimate.

     or South America or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race.

     2 - Not Hispanic:  Check "Not Hispanic" for all persons who are not of
     Hispanic Origin.


 ITEM 7 - EXPECTED SOURCE(S) OF PAYMENT

 Check the source or sources which, to the best of your knowledge, describe
 how this visit will be paid for.  If several categories are necessary to
 describe payment sources, check all that apply.

     1 - Self-Pay:  Any charges billed directly to the patient or patient's
     family which will not be reimbursed by a third party.  Includes
     "co-payments" and "deductibles."  Does not include pre-paid plans for
     which no co-payment is charged.

     was charged covering entire pregnancy, and HMO and prepaid systems.

     8 - Other:  (Specify) Any other source of payment not covered in above
     categories.  Examples include workman's compensation programs, local
     welfare, CHAMPUS, and VA.


 ITEM 8 - WAS PATIENT REFERRED FOR THIS VISIT BY ANOTHER PHYSICIAN?

 This item is intended to provide an idea of the "flow" of ambulatory patients
 from one physician to another.  This item concerns referral to the sample
 physician by a different physician.  The counterpart to this item is box 5 of
 Item 16 which concerns referrals by the sample physician to another physi-
 cian.

 The interest is in referrals for this visit and not in referrals for any
 prior visit.  Referrals are any visits that are made because of the advice or
 direction of a physician other than the one being visited.


 ITEM 9 - PATIENT'S COMPLAINT(S), SYMPTOM(S) OR OTHER REASON(S) FOR THIS
          VISIT (in patient's own words)

     (1)  We want the patient's principal complaint, symptom or other reason
          as it seems to the patient.  The physician may recognize right away,
          or may find out after examination, that the real problem is some-
          thing entirely different, but here we are interested in how the
          patient defines his trouble.

     (2)  The item (like all other items on the Patient Record) refers to
          patient's complaint, symptom or other reason for this visit.
          Conceivably, the patient may be in treatment for a serious illness,
          but if his principal problem on this visit is a cut finger or a
          twisted ankle, that is the information we want.

     (3)  The complaint or symptom should be described in the patient's own
          words.  We will obtain the physician's diagnosis in Item 10.  Here
          we want the patient's description of the problem:  "pain in chest,"
          "cramps after eating," or whatever.

 Space has been allotted for:  (a) most important, and (b) other complaints,
 symptoms, and reasons, if mentioned by patient.  In actuality we code up to
 three patient problems regardless of whether they are listed in (a) or (b),
 or both.  They are coded in the order they are listed.

 There will, of course, be visits by patients for reasons other than some
 complaint or symptom.  Examples might be:  annual checkup, routine prenatal
 or postnatal care.  In such cases, the physician should simply enter the
 reason for the visit.  (But remember that if the reason for patient visit was
 only to pay a bill or ask the physician to fill out an insurance form or to
 drop off a specimen, no Patient Record should be completed.


 ITEM 10 - PHYSICIAN'S DIAGNOSES

 This item should never be blank.

     a.  Under "PRINCIPAL DIAGNOSIS" record best assessment of diagnosis
     associated with the patient's most important complaint/reason in Item 9.

     If possible, enter a final or provisional diagnosis; otherwise diagnosis
     may be expressed in "problem" terms.

     If no diagnosis exists for the reason in Item 9 (e.g., visits for
     well-person exam), enter "well person" or other appropriate description
     of the situation.


 ITEM 11 - HAVE YOU SEEN PATIENT BEFORE?

     "Seen," means "provided care for" at any time in the past.  If no (never
     saw patient before), the physician marks that box and goes on to Item 12.
     If he marks "Yes," he must also answer the sub-question:  Has he seen
     this patient before for the condition diagnosed in Item 10?


 ITEM 12 - DIAGNOSTIC/SCREENING SERVICES

 Check appropriate boxes for all services ordered or provided during this
 visit.

     1.  None:  Self-explanatory

     2.  Pap test:  Papanicolaou test

     3.  Pelvic exam:  Self-explanatory

     4.  Breast palpation:  Manual examination to detect abnormalities.

     5.  Mammogram:  A roentgenogram of the breast.

     6.  Visual Acuity:  Self-explanatory

     7.  Blood pressure check:  Self-explanatory

     8.  Urinalysis:  Physical, chemical, or microscopic examination of urine.

     9.  Chest X-ray:  Single or multiple x-rays of the chest for diagnosis or
                       screening purposes.  Excludes fluoroscopy and studies
                       of ribs, bony thorax and spine.

    10.  Digital rectal exam:  Manual examination of the rectum.

    11.  Proct/sigmoidoscopy:  Examination of the rectum and sigmoid by means
                               of the sigmoidoscope.

             DISPOSITION                   DEFINITION

     1.  No Follow-up Planned:      No return visit or telephone
                                    contact is scheduled for the
                                    patient's problem on this visit.

     2.  Return at Specified Time:  The patient is told to schedule an
                                    appointment or is instructed to return

     3.  Return if Needed, P.R.N.:  No future appointment is made, but the
                                    patient is instructed to make an
                                    appointment with the physician if the
                                    patient considers it necessary.
                                    (P.R.N., pro re nata, as necessary, as the
                                    occasion arises.)

     4.  Telephone Follow-up        The patient is instructed to telephone
           Planned:                 the physician on a particular day (to
                                    report on this progress), or if the need
                                    arises (if he has any trouble or wishes
                                    further consultation.

     5.  Referred to Other          The patient is instructed to consult or
           Physician:               seek care from another physician.  The
                                    patient may or may not return to this
                                    physician at a later date.

     6.  Returned to Referring      Patient was referred to this physician
           Physician:               and is now instructed to consult again
                                    with the physician who referred him.

     7.  Admit to Hospital:         Patient is instructed that further care
                                    or treatment will be provided in a
                                    hospital.  No further office visits are

                                    included in the above categories.  Any
                                    such "other" disposition should be
                                    described on the line provided.


 ITEM 17 - DURATION OF THIS VISIT

 Include here the entire time the doctor spent with the patient.  DO NOT
 include the time patient spent waiting to see the doctor.  DO NOT include the
 time patient spent receiving care from someone other than the doctor.

 For example, the nurse gave the patient an inoculation, or a technician
 administered an electrocardiogram.  It is entirely possible that for visits
 such as these, the patient would not see the doctor at all.  In that case,
 zero minutes should be entered in Item 17.  The intent of this item is to get
 the total time spent in face-to-face contact with the doctor.

 If more than one patient is seen by the doctor at the same time, apply the
 following rule:

 If the doctor can easily segregate the time spent with each (e.g., 3 minutes
 with one and 27 minutes with the other), he should record that on the patient
 record forms.  If he cannot estimate how much time was spent with each, he
 should divide the total time equally among the patients seen together.


DEFINITIONS OF CERTAIN TERMS USED IN THIS DOCUMENT

 Office(s).--Premises that the physician identifies as locations for his
 ambulatory practice.  Responsibility over time for patient care and
 professional services rendered there generally resides with the individual
 physician rather than with any institution.

 Visit.--A direct, personal exchange between ambulatory patient and the
 physician (or members of his staff) for the purpose of seeking care and
 rendering health services.

 Ambulatory patient.--An individual presenting for personal health services,
 neither bedridden nor currently admitted to any health care institution on
 the premises.

 Drug mention(s).--The physician's entry of a pharmaceutical agent ordered or
 provided--by any route of administration--for prevention, diagnosis, or
 treatment.  Generic as well as brand-name drugs are included.  Along with all
 new drugs, the physician also records continued medications, if the patient
 was specifically instructed during the visit to continue the medication.

 Patients.--Can be classified as either:

 In-scope:  All patients seen by the physician or member of his staff in his
 office(s).

 Out-of-scope:  Patients seen by the physician in a hospital, nursing home, or
 other extended care institution, or the patient's home.  Note:  If the doctor
 has a private office (which fits definition of "office") located in a
 hospital, the ambulatory patients seen there would be considered "in-scope."
 The following types of patients are also considered out of scope:

     patients seen by the physician in any institution (including outpatient
     clinics of hospitals) for which the institution has the primary
     responsibility for the care of the patient over time.

     patients who telephone and receive advice from the physician

     patients who come to the office only to leave a specimen, pick up
     insurance forms, or pay their bills

     patients who come to the office only to pick up medications previously
     prescribed by the physician

 Physician.--Can be classified as either:

 In-Scope:  All duly licensed doctors of medicine and doctors of osteopathy
 currently in practice who devote most of their practice to caring for
 ambulatory patients at an office location.

 Out-of-Scope:  Those physicians who treat patients only indirectly, including
 specialists in anesthesiology, pathology, forensic pathology, radiology,
 therapeutic radiology, and diagnostic radiology, and the following physi-
 cians.

     physicians in military service

     physicians who treat patients only in an institutional setting
     (e.g., patients in nursing homes and hospitals)

     physicians employed full time by an industry or institution and having no
     private practice (e.g., physicians who work for the VA, the Ford Motor
     Company, etc.)

     physicians who either spend no time seeing ambulatory patients or whose
     patient-care activity is secondary to another principal activity, such as
     teaching, administration, or research.

 Physician specialty.--Principal specialty (including general practice) as
 designated by the physician at the time of the survey.  Those physicians for
 whom a specialty was not obtained were assigned the principal specialty
 recorded in the Master Physician files maintained by the AMA or AOA.

 Region of practice location.--The four geographic regions which correspond to
 those used by the U.S. Bureau of the Census, are as follows:
