WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Fewer people are going to the doctor now than they did in 2001.
The U.S. Census Bureau reports that in 2010, the average working-age adult made an average of nearly 4 visits to a medical professional.
That's down from nearly 5 visits 9 years earlier.
Overall, most people say they're doing well, with 66 percent saying they're in either excellent or very good health.
Among ethnic groups, Hispanics were least likely to seek a doctor's care.
