This Data Bulletin is based on physicians' reports of net income from the practice of medicine from the HSC Community Tracking Study Physician Survey in 1996-97, 1998-99 and 2000-01. Net income equals income from the practice of medicine after expenses and before taxes. Reported income is lagged--for example, in the 2000-01 survey, physicians provide 1999 net income. Adjustments for inflation use the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) online inflation calculator.
