A Professional Profile of Diplomates of the American Board of Forensic Anthropology: 1984–1992
The updated 1993 membership directory of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences lists 163 members in the physical anthropology section. Of these, 38, or approximately 23%, have completed the process of certification and are diplomates of the American Board of Forensic Anthropology.
In lieu of periodic re-examination, the board requires that each diplomate provide an annual report of professional activities to maintain certification. This information forms a database concerning sources of casework, case types, expertise requested, court activities, and other professional pursuits engaged in by diplomates.
Statistics are presented concerning the professional activities of board certified forensic anthropologists in 1992. Trends for the period 1984 to 1992 are analyzed.
