Story Behind the Curve

As noted above, the wording for this question changed between 2020 and 2021. The 2021 survey asked respondents about the number of times they had in-person, phone or video visits, whereas the 2020 survey did not define "visit". We did see an increase in the 1 or more visit response rate in 2021, which may indicate increased access due to video and phone visits, but more time is needed to monitor this question.
