Table 4 Spatial accessibility of hospital services in minority and non-minority region

From: Assessing the disparity in spatial access to hospital care in ethnic minority region in Sichuan Province, China

Hospital Capacity Region All Hospitals Public Hospitals Private Hospitals
Primary Secondary Tertiary Primary Secondary
Doctors Minority 0.57 0.07 0.37 0.09 0.04 0.00
Non-minority 0.90 0.06 0.34 0.33 0.14 0.03
Health Professionals Minority 1.81 0.18 1.19 0.30 0.13 0.01
Non-minority 2.86 0.19 1.05 1.07 0.45 0.09
Hospital Beds Minority 2.26 0.25 1.49 0.29 0.22 0.02
Non-minority 3.37 0.34 1.22 1.07 0.64 0.10
  1. Note: To get the spatial accessibility (including spatial access to doctors, health professionals, and hospitals beds) of different types of hospitals, hospitals of different ownership and level were firstly calculated using the E2SFCA (enhanced two-step floating catchment area) method separately. The spatial accessibility of population points located in ethnic minority and non-minority region were then weight averaged with population density respectively to get the average spatial accessibility of ethnic minority and non-minority region
