Adult With a Checkup in Past Year

New York Finger Lakes Region

Adult checkup rates are fairly consistent across income and geography. Survey respondents were asked how long it has been since they last visited a doctor for a routine checkup. Not surprisingly, the uninsured had a much lower rate than those with private or Medicaid coverage. Interestingly, the African-American population had a significantly higher rate than the white and Latino populations. It is important to recognize that checkups are only one indicator of primary care, and this data does not suggest there are not other disparities in access to preventive care.
