Thanks for posting this, glad to see it going up.
the avg goes up a few thousand a yr. I think it was 86 last yr and 84 the yr before and 81 a couple yrs ago. the specialty rates are more helpful as they show more specific trends.

It says new grads make $78405. Would a PA that specializes make significantly more as a new grad?
