Idaho State Counties
Franklin: Number of primary care physicians

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of primary care physicians by the total population. We multiply the result by 10,000.

In counties with relatively few people, a small change in the number of primary care physicians may have a significant effect on rates from year to year.

In Franklin in 2020. . .

  • There were 3.5 primary care physicians per 10,000 population, compared to 6.3 per 10,000 in Idaho
  • There were 5 primary care physicians in Franklin compared to 5 in 2016.

To get the most out of this indicator . . .
