I apologize; I had assumed you ended up actually READING (I'm starting to notice a trend here) what is listed on the page I linked at some point. The data collected from employers is NOT annual wages but amount paid out PER HOUR. The Median wage (which is what you seem fixated on) is calculated by taking the $/hr * 40 * 52. In other words, it doesn't matter if they collect their income from 231489154289159 different sources because the data was collected with that in mind.Did you read anything I posted earlier? If they get their data from "EMPLOYERS" that would make sense. Most anesthesiologists do surgeries at multiple hospitals and surgical centers. Collections from multiple places. Therefore collections from would underestimate the salary of an employee such as an anesthesiologist.
Seems to line up almost exactly with physicians that I personally know. You are entitled to believe whatever you want, but that won't change reality at all.
