ASCP Wage Survey of Medical Laboratories in the United States
Since 1988, the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) has conducted its wage survey to inform the pathology and laboratory field of the most recent national wage data. This confidential survey has been administered every 2 years and has served as the primary source of information for academic, government, and industry labor analysts. Results from past surveys show that laboratory medicine is a rapidly evolving field.
Although the ASCP recognizes the importance of continuity, each administration of the wage survey represents an opportunity to improve its methodology to collect the most current relevant data while maximizing survey participation. The ASCP continues to gather questions, comments, and suggestions from our members regarding the profession with the goal of addressing them through this important survey.
The results of this survey will also serve as a starting point for further studies of the laboratory workforce by using the current data collected to conduct in-depth surveys for the purpose of recruitment, retention, education, marketing, certification, and advocacy.
