The Health Resources and Services Administration has released Maternity Care Target Area weighted scores for Primary Care Health Professional Shortage Areas experiencing a shortage of maternity health care professionals. The weighted scores will be summed to develop a composite MCTA score ranging from zero to 25, with 25 indicating the greatest need for maternity care health professionals in the MCTA. The interactive databank includes information on the supply of primary care, dental and mental health providers down to the county level.
