    Objectives

    Socioeconomic differences in use of physician services in Nova Scotia, Canada were examined.

    Methods

    The study was based on survey data, containing information on socioeconomic status, linked to physician claims data.

    Socioeconomic differences in use of physician services were estimated, adjusted for age, sex, and region of residence.

    Results

    Large socioeconomic differences were observed in the use of physician services, with use inversely related to both household income and education.

    These differences remained after adjustment for age, sex, and region.

    Conclusions

    Use of physician services is inversely associated with socioeconomic status.
