Dentists and Primary Care Physicians
Understanding the graph:
- The data provided is the ratio of population to 1 dentist in each comparative county. For example, Fond du Lac County (WI) has a value of 1,520 on the dentist graph – this means there is a population of 1,520 to every 1 dentist in the county. Similar methodology can be applied to primary care physicians.
- Fond du Lac County (WI) has a smaller population to dentist ratio, as well as an overall decrease in from 2013 to 2016. We see a slightly different story when it comes to primary care physicians – we see an increase in ratio of population to primary care physician.
