Collected through national surveys and from secondary sources, this publication provides information on the geographic distribution of the following selected health personnel: (1) pharmacists, (2) registered nurses, (3) dentists, (4) physicians, (5) podiatrists, and (6) veterinarians. Data are presented in tables reflecting selected health personnel, population, and effective buying income by state, standard metropolitan statistical area, county, and county group within the state for 1966-1968. Generally, health personnel in the selected categories have shown an increase in the years since 1962. Decreases in the ratios of pharmacists, nurses, and physicians to population were evident in the western region. The ratios of dentists and pharmacists also decreased in the northeastern region, although this region continued to maintain the highest ratio of personnel to population. (SB)
