Dental Economics' 2002 fee, practice, and staff surveys went high tech, with all of the respondent data gathered exclusively via DE's Internet Web site for the first time. Providing the technical and statistical support for this year's survey was Chris Wright, PhD, of CorporateSurvey.com.
This survey actually consists of three former surveys in one: fee, salary, and general practice. By combining them, we can cross-tabulate the responses and uncover new statistical relationships among the data to make the results even more powerful and useful. As we begin to more fully appreciate the statistical capabilities of working with such integrated data, we will continue to enhance the survey in the future.
