Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
Latest nursing data to match available denominator data are year 2004. The RN denominator data from 2008 Nurse Licensee Volume and NCLEX Examination Statistics (by The National Council of State Boards of Nursing) is available but it double counts nurses registered from different states so they recommended the Census data for denominator.
Specialists with geriatric certification are included in the data sources listed.
