Latest Census Data Shows Americans Making Fewer Trips to the Doctor
The U.S. Census Bureau says American are visiting Doctors less frequently.
 
In 2010, working-age adults made an average of 3.9 visits to doctors, nurses or other medical providers, down from 4.8 in 2001.

That’s according to a report released Monday by the U.S. Census Bureau.
 
According to the report, most Americans consider themselves to be quite healthy: nearly two in three (66 percent) reported their health as being either “excellent” or “very good.” Another 24 percent said their health was “good,” while 8 percent described it as “fair” and 2 percent as “poor.” Non-Hispanic blacks were more likely to consider their health to be fair or poor (13 percent) than non-Hispanic whites (10 percent) or Hispanics (9 percent).
