   This report examines the extent to which U.S. adults age 35 and older were reported to have received age/sex appropriate preventive care services (as of early 2015) in accordance with U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommendations. The applicable population subgroups (defined by age and sex) and recommended periodicity of service receipt differ across the services examined. Variation in the extent that these preventive services were received within recommended periodicities by type of service, age/sex group, and selected sociodemographic characteristics is also examined.
