Additionally, the growth rate in the number of practitioners is low enough where the actual numbers for this period would not be materially different from the number expected for the next several years. ** An extra minute has been added to each average time per response to reflect the proposal for the first liability question in the application to now be broken down into two parts. *** Figures are rounded. 6.
