Ever wondered how many veterinarians are in Australia? And be part of the 2013 survey

Cute kitten sits in a drawer. Because she can!

According to the latest report from the AVA, its 10,317 (as of June 2012 - so that doesn't count the 2012 graduates nor anyone who retired since then).

You can find out more - like how many are working in which field and average salary - in the AVA's inaugural annual workforce report

Interestingly, although women outnumber men in many brackets, men earn higher salaries than their female veterinary counterparts. I am sure this is for complex reasons including the types of vet work performed - but what exactly are these complex reasons?
