  1. Binary logistic regression analyses. N = 3179 GPs
  2. 1) "High rate" defined as > 35 meetings per 1000 patients per year
  3. 2) Proportion of MDMs concerning patients ≥ 67 years lower than the proportion of list population ≥ 67 years
  4. 3) Proportion of MDMs concerning patients ≥ 67 years equal to or higher than the proportion of list population ≥ 67 years
  5. 4) Among list population ≥ 20 years
  6. 5) Proportion disability pensioners in the age group 20 - 67 years
  7. 6) Proportion with social assistance in the age group 20 - 40 years
  8. *) Categorised variables with three equal sized groups of GPs, percentages are give, rounded to nearest whole numbers, to illustrate differences between GP groups.
