  1. “Supply levels” describe the official supply of GPs (in %) for each city as calculated by the KBV [46] as of 2015 (Geographical base of calculating supply levels differed from statistic boundaries used in this study). : city average. FTE full time equivalent in regard to their contracted participation in primary care, PPR FTE per 10^4 residents (see Methods section for further details). SD Standard Deviation
