Question

The Public Citizen Health Research Group (the "group") calculated the rate of serious disciplinary actions per 1000 doctors in each state. Using state-bystate data from the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) on the number of disciplinary actions taken against doctors in 2007, combined with data from earlier FSMB reports covering 2005 and 2006, the group compiled a national report ranking state boards by the rate of serious disciplinary actions per 1000 doctors for the years 2005-2007. Following are data for the 10 states with the highest rates. According to the group, "Absent any evidence that the prevalence of physicians deserving of discipline varies substantially from state to state, this variability must be considered the result of the boards' practices."

a. First column of the table.
b. Second column of the table.
