For sample adults in 2007 who have seen a practitioner for a special diet during the past 12 months (DITPRACYR), DITPRACPAY reports the average out-of-pocket cost, in dollars, for each visit to a practitioner for the special diet used most by the respondent (DITMOST).
In addition to including DIPRACPAY, the 2007 survey includes 19 other variables that provide data on the average out-of-pocket cost per visit to a practitioner or for a class for a particular alternative health modality, as well as data on the cost of alternative health materials purchased by the respondent. See ACUPAID for the full list. For more information on the 2002 and 2007 Alternative Health supplements, including the full range of variables covered and definitions, see ACUYR.
