The debate on health care reform in the United States has been greatly influenced by various national studies showing a strong relationship between lack of public or private health care coverage and inadequate access to health services.
There is also much concern about deficiencies in the availability and delivery of services to certain population groups-especially for those living in the most remote and sparsely populated areas of the country.
However, national studies have generally not demonstrated that the use of health services is strongly associated with urban/rural residence or the supply of medical providers.
In this study, we show that national studies can obscure the problems of certain population groups including American Indians and Alaska Natives.
