We’re not sure how many Americans actually have a doctor.
We know that the percentage of Americans who have a primary care physician (PCP) has risen steadily from 4% in 2000 to nearly 7% in 2016.
PCPs are the primary care providers who prescribe the medicine they are supposed to administer to patients.
This is why the percentage with a PCP has been increasing steadily, and why it is a huge reason why Americans are increasingly uninsured.
But a new study finds that the number of Americans with a primary-care physician (PPC) is much higher than the percentage who actually have one.
A new report by The New York Times found that between 2015 and 2017, the percentage for PPCs in the United States rose from just over 5% to over 9%.
The researchers also looked at data from other countries, and found that the proportion of PPC physicians in other countries is much lower, at about 1% in the European Union, and 0.6% in Australia.
The researchers found that as the number with a PPC increased, the number who actually had one increased as well.
So the problem is not that there is no doctor out there who has a doctorate, but that there are so many who do not have a PhD or have a specialty that it becomes hard to determine who is getting the best care, the study says.
