Distribution of Psychiatrists Across North Carolina
By Evan Galloway
Mar 6, 2019
- North Carolina has 1.2 psychiatrist FTEs (full-time equivalents) per 10,000 population.
- Orange County has 9.8% of the psychiatrist FTEs in North Carolina, but only 1.4% of the population.
- Granville County, home to one of the three state psychiatric hospitals, is also an outlier.
- Unlike our health professional supply map, which assigns heath professionals to counties based on primary practice location, this map accounts for psychiatrists who practice in multiple counties. For instance, on this map, 10 counties appear to have no psychiatrists, while on the primary practice location map, 28 counties appear to have no psychiatrists.
