a To maintain consistency with data from prior years, visits to midlevel providers at community health centers were excluded. Population used for calculation is the U.S. Census Bureau estimated civilian noninstitutional population on July 1, 2007, and July 1, 2008.

b For 2007-2008, 35.7% of race data were missing. Missing data were imputed, and standard errors were inflated consistent with the guidance in "2007 NAMCS Microdata File Documentation," ftp://ftp.cdc.gov/pub/Health_Statistics/NCHS/Dataset_Documentation/NAMCS/doc07.pdf.� These data should be interpreted with caution.
