Numerous studies have established a relationship between culture and utilization of health care services. It has been identified that service use increases as the level of acculturation increases but how this relationship changes as acculturation takes place has been relatively unexamined.



This study uses the Anderson-Aday model of health care access as a conceptual framework to describe; (l) acculturation rates in the population-at-risk and (2) relationships between the acculturation rates and certain health care utilization variables.



Data from over 5000 non-institutionalized Mexican-Americans aged 17-74 collected for the 1982-84 HHANES has been collated and analyzed using SAS. Findings of this study show frequencies, ranges and distributions consistent with NCHS reports. The presentation will include analysis of three levels of acculturation, SES factors and the utilization measures using ANOVA.



Study outcomes will provide data describing utilization of health services by a population-subgroup. This is significant for both policy and program planning in community health nursing.
