Abstract

Vector representation of utilization for medical and consumer services were used to compare changes over time in two adjacent rural counties. In one a National Health Service Corps site was established; the other served as a control. Consumer utilization patterns remained stable over the five-year study period. The shifts over time in medical and hospital use were in opposite directions in the two counties.
