Article subtitle: A changing healthcare landscape presents new challenges for your practice. Are you willing to adjust to provide your patients with the best possible care?
About this survey: Our 19th Annual Salary and Expense Survey had an impressive number of participants, with 516 doctors of chiropractic responding to the confidential, web-based questionnaire. Throughout March 2016, Chiropractic Economics magazine invited practicing chiropractors (and CAs on their behalf) to complete the annual survey. We extended the invitation by email as well as through announcements in our enewsletters and social networking sites. Additionally, we encouraged a number of state, national, and alumni associations to distribute the survey to their members.
Regional representation: Our response to this year’s survey was wide-ranging, and we received at least one response from every state except New Mexico, Oklahoma, Wyoming and Rhode Island. The regional breakdown is as follows: Midwest, 30 percent; South, 30 percent; West, 23 percent; and East, 17 percent. None came from outside the U.S.
Statistics: You will find references to averages (or means) in this year’s survey. Reader feedback has indicated that the survey is better understood by only stating averages. The average is the number calculated by dividing the total by the number in the set—an arithmetic average.
