A survey on health services provided in accordance with the Health Service Law for the Aged was conducted in 3,278 cities, wards, towns, and villages throughout Japan in May 1985. Responses were returned from 2,645 districts and data on beneficiaries of these health services in 2,625 districts became available.

The service-acceptance rate was affected by both the size of the population of the local community and the methods of implementation of health services. Therefore, the mutual effects of population size and service methods were corrected by logistic regression analysis to find the relationship between methods of implementing health services and the response rate of the public in accepting the services. The service-acceptance rate was divided into two categories: one less than 30% and the other 30% and over. Odds ratios were calculated for an acceptance ratio of 30% and over. The results were summarized as follows:
