NCHS descibes the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS) as "a national survey designed to meet the need for objective, reliable information about the provision and use of ambulatory medical care services in the United States. Findings are based on a sample of visits to non-federal employed office-based physicians who are primarily engaged in direct patient care."
NCHS' main Ambulatory Health Care Data web page has a lot of information about its ambulatory health care surveys, the NAMCS and NHAMCS. In addition to the data and survey instruments, NCHS also offers information on the scope and sample design, data collection and processing, estimation procedures, reliability of estimates, and staff presentations.
