If you haven’t had the chance to check out the rankings of states by average dental practice scores from our Sikka Success Report™, do it today – it’s fascinating. When we noticed that Vermont had long been holding down its lofty perch at or near the top of the rankings, we asked the question, “Is this just because it’s a ‘rich’ state?” For that matter, is the success of a state’s average practice tied to its per capita income? We’re happy to report that it’s not:Show Me More Trends
The correlation is negligible, at 0.056 (i.e., any difference in per capita income only explains 5.6% of the change in Practice Success Score, and vice versa). And Vermont isn’t a particularly high-income state, anyway, as you can see. In effect, it “punches above its weight” in the success of its dentistries.
