More on the geographical distribution of physicians.


This paper presents more empirical evidence on the geographical distribution of physicians. Probit procedure and data for the Province of Quebec were used. The results are consistent with the standard location theory and therefore with those of Newhouse et al. (1982a). They also show that quality of leisure, distance to central city areas, average income and presence of a hospital are significant in explaining the probability that at least one physician (specialist or general practitioner) is present in a given town. Other variables were also considered.
