User Population Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can you explain how you arrive at the Userpop counts and how the process was determined?
What is the IHS definition of a userpop?
The following definition of a Userpop was taken from the cover letter that accompanies the final user population estimates each year:
“An unduplicated count by residence of American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) registrants who have had a direct or contract inpatient, ambulatory, or dental encounter with the health system during the last three years.” [Close]

Who decided on the definition?
Where can I get the official Userpop count? What if I disagree with my numbers?
How should I interpret the Userpop reports on the web?

How often are the reports posted to the web?
What if I disagree with my numbers?
Who is excluded?

How important is it where the LAST visit of the 3-year period took place?
What if: One of my registrants is also visiting another area?
