For sample adults, LVISGENERAL indicates if the respondent saw a general doctor on the last health care visit.
Other health care providers mentioned are:

  • Nurse practitioner or physician assistant

In 2011, a different variable LVISGENSPEC asked the same question, but the response did not have nurse practitioner/physician assistant category.
This variable can be used to monitor the effects of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).


Beginning in 2012, there are no comparability issuers.


  • 2012-2013; 2014: Sample adults 18+ who visited a clinic, doctor's office/HMO, hospital outpatient department or someplace else (not ER or urgent care center) on their last visit.
