This study identified the relationship between individual health locus of control (HLOC) style and the utilization of ER, office-based healthcare visits, and hospitalizations in a rural South Dakota population. The multidimensional HLOC scale developed by Wallston, Wallston, and DeVillis (1978)and utilization questions by Aday and Andersen (1974) were combined and randomly distributed to 500 participants. Two hundred and thirty-two (232) surveys were analyzed using a heirarchical poisson regression. Statistical significance was defined by a p-value less than 0.05. Rural people likely to utilize the ER included those who lived a farther distance from the ER, those with a higher educational level, and individuals who have lived at their residence for more than five years. No specific HLOC style was found statistically significant for predicting ER utilization. Rural persons likely to be hospitalized were male, unmarried and percieved their provider to be accessible and available. They also did not utilize Medicare and reported a powerful others HLOC. Rural persons likely to utilize office-based visits were older females who have lived at their residence greater than five years and were employed outside of home. Powerful others HLOC was also found to be a strong predictor of office-based visits with a p-value of 0.0002.
