Studies on Chiropractic

In 1993, the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners published reports based on a three-year study of chiropractic. These reports focused on two surveys: one of approximately 5,000 full-time, licensed U.S. chiropractic practitioners and the other of approximately 600 full-time, licensed Canadian chiropractic practitioners. (A third survey report conducted in Australia and New Zealand will be completed in 1994.) The surveys and their resulting reports are titled Job Analysis of Chiropractic.

Following publication of the Job Analysis of Chiropractic, the NBCE began to receive requests for permission to reproduce certain portions of the reports. In response to those requests, the NBCE has condensed relevant portions and reprinted them....
