Licensed Florida Physicians 
The number of people with active physicians' licenses in Florida.

Looking at numbers of professionals or facilities within a geographic area helps to focus on the availability of health care and its quality.

In 2020, the rate per 100,000 of Licensed Florida Physicians in Alachua County was 961.5 compared to Florida at 314. The line graph shows change over time when there are at least three years of data.

Alachua County is in the first quartile for this measure. This means that relative to other counties in Florida, there are less Licensed Florida Physicians in about three quarters of the counties. The map illustrates county data by quartile. When fewer than 51 counties have data or zero values, no quartile map will be presented.

Data Note(s)
  • Data reported is a census of licensed professionals taken in the 4th quarter of the year reported and includes in-state active and military active professionals.
  • Licensure data are for a fiscal year (July 1-June 30). Data includes actively licensed providers only. The specialty information (family practice) is reported voluntarily and is neither required nor verified by the Department.
  • The state total is greater than the sum of the counties due to licensed practitioners whose county was unknown.
  • This is secondary, quantitative data.
  • All population-based rates are calculated using July 1 Florida population estimates from the Florida Legislature, Office of Economic and Demographic Research.
  • Chart will display if there are at least three years of data.
  • Multi-year counts are a sum of the selected years, not an average.
  • Quartiles are calculated when data are available for at least 51 counties.
  • MOV - Measure of Variability: Probable range of values resulting from random fluctuations in the number of events. Not calculated when numerator is below 5 or denominator is below 20, or count or rate is suppressed. The MOV is useful for comparing rates to a goal or standard. For example, if the absolute difference between the county rate and the statewide rate is less than the MOV, the county rate is not significantly different from the statewide rate (alpha level = 0.05). When the absolute difference between the county rate and the statewide rate is greater than the MOV, the county rate is significantly different from the statewide rate. MOV should not be used to determine if the rates of two different counties, or the county rates for two different years, are statistically significantly different.
  • Denom - abbreviated for denominator.
  • Population estimates are not available for persons whose county of residence is unknown. Given this, the denominator and associated rate are not available.
  • * - Indicates the county rate is statistically significantly different from the statewide rate.
