A geographic information system was used to integrate information on the uptake of cervical cytology screening for general medical practices in Norfolk with other data on the characteristics of the practices and the population they served.
Regression analysis was employed to explore the extent to which variations in non-response were associated with explanatory factors.
Non-response to the earlier system of opportunistic screening was found to be associated with the size of practice, the presence of a female doctor, the District Health Authority in which the practice was located, the age structure of a female population, its degree of socio-economic deprivation and levels of rural remoteness.
