Abstract
Sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, this survey is one component of the Community Tracking Study (CTS), a national study designed to track changes in the health care system and the effects of the changes on care delivery and on individuals. Central to the design of the CTS is its community focus. Sixty sites (51 metropolitan areas and 9 nonmetropolitan areas) were randomly selected to form the core of the CTS and to be representative of the nation as a whole. The Physician Survey was administered to physicians in the 60 CTS sites and to a supplemental national sample of physicians. Information gathered by the survey instrument includes physician supply and specialty distribution, practice arrangements and physician ownership of practices, sources of practice revenue, level and determinants of physician compensation, effects of care management strategies, and physicians' allocation of time, provision of charity care, career satisfaction, and perceptions of their ability to deliver care. For primary care physicians, the survey instrument also provided vignettes of various clinical presentations for which there was no prescribed method of treatment. These physicians were asked to indicate the percentage of patients for whom they would recommend the course of action specified in each particular vignette. Part 3, the Site and County Crosswalk Data File, describes which counties constitute each site. Part 4, the Physician Survey Summary File, contains site-level averages and percentages and standard errors of these estimates for selected attributes, e.g., the percentage of physicians who were foreign medical school graduates, average age of physicians, average percentage of patient care practice revenue from Medicaid, etc.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR02597.v3
