If ASCP does is like they have done it before, they send out the
1500 random surveys to lab managers from the end of July until 
the end of October on even years. Then in about February or
March, of the following odd-numbered year, they publish the 
results in "Laboratory Medicine."

So, if they follow the same pattern, they will be doing
the survey starting the end of next month, and publishing
it in Feb-Mar 2001.

So . . . warn your supervisors/managers to look for the
survey, and be sure to fill it out and mail it in. We 
need all the statistics on HT and HTL we can get.

My informal studies indicate a larger shortage of
histotechs than med tech or cytotechs, when you take
the proportion of histotechs to all the other lab
professionals. About 2-3 times more openings listed
for histotechs than you would expect from the number
of histotechs in hospitals, vs. the number of 
openings for med techs or cytotechs compared to
their numbers in labs.
