   This Statistical Brief describes characteristics of persons in the U.S. civilian noninstitutionalized population who had no ambulatory care visits in 2008. Ambulatory care includes visits to a doctor’s office or outpatient clinic. Overall, 59.7 million adults, or 26.0 percent of the U.S. adult civilian noninstitutionalized population had no ambulatory care visit in 2008. Age, gender, race/ethnicity, health status, and income were all characteristics examined in this Brief. Of all of these characteristics, the health insurance status of the non-elderly distinguished most dramatically those with and without ambulatory care.
