Data for the 87th Annual Medical Economics Physician Report was collected on behalf of Medical Economics by Readex Research via online survey in October 2015. The survey was closed with 2,439 responses. Qualifying for the final tabulation were the 2,065 respondents who indicated they are actively practicing medicine. The margin of error for percentages based on 2,065 qualified responses is 2.1 percentage points at the 95% confidence level. Percentages calculated on smaller tabulation bases-for examples, primary field or age-are subject to greater statistical variability.
