This version shows only the country and region of respondents

Mixed access regime: The data are available in two forms. The openly accessible version shows only the country and (for some countries) the region where the respondent is practising. A second version shows, in addition, information about the respondents' gender and years since graduation, and the size and type of their practice; due to concerns over the potential for reidentification of participants from this information, it is available only on request.
