Ambulatory care use rates to the nearest physician, according to level of Localized potential accessibility (LPA)*
[France, 2010]

* The Local Potential Accessibility indicator measures the balance between health care supply and demand at municipality level. It ranges from level 1 (lowest LPA) to level 4 (highest LPA).

Reading: In general medicine, patients living in municipalities with the lowest LPA (level 1, very low GP provision) are 29% to consult with the nearest physician while they are 78% among those who live in municipalities with the highest LPA (level 4, very high GP provision).
