If the question is about a specific specialty, it may be helpful to contact that specialty society.  We get asked the question about ob/gyn - population ratio frequently, and altho we do not recommend a specific ratio, we know what the numbers are and what the general recommendations of others are for our specialty.

there are some good links from   for both specialists, primary care providers

 also, the graduate medical education national advisory committee report  gives ratios of physicians to population for specialities... a us public health services report...
