 AVMA Biennial Economic Survey coming soon...

Posted March 1, 2002

Every two years since 1984, the AVMA has surveyed veterinarians to collect data on professional incomes and practice operations. The time to fill out the 2002 survey is fast approaching.

In the current economic climate and during this critical time of increased focus on the economics of the veterinary profession, member participation in the AVMA's upcoming survey is more important than ever.

In early April, the survey package will be sent to a random sample of veterinarians representing all work categories within the United States. Should you receive a survey package, please take the time to fill out the survey completely and accurately. All veterinarians sampled, regardless of their current practice or employment situation, are encouraged to participate.

Once all the surveys are received and the data compiled, summary results will be published in the JAVMA and on the AVMA Network Website. Also, comprehensive statistical results will be published in a new edition of the "Economic Report on Veterinarians and Veterinary Practices."

To ensure the most accurate and timely information to serve AVMA members, it is vital that a high response rate be achieved.
