We publish this week, for the eleventh consecutive year, tabulated statistics based on examinations conducted by state medical licensing boards. This year, however, the matter presented includes other information having a direct bearing on state boards and on methods of registration. For example, Table D, showing in what states certain colleges are not recognized, although not based on the reports of examinations, has a very important influence on the results of those examinations and is absolutely essential in the forming of an accurate conclusion regarding any state board or any medical college. All the data published, however, are based on official reports, and the figures have been carefully verified, so that reliance may be placed on the facts presented. Reports were received from all state boards this year and the statistics are complete. This is in marked contrast with the statistics of 1903, when the publication of these data began.
