This report presents preliminary findings from a mail survey of all optometrists licensed to practice in the State of South Carolina. The surveys was conducted in 1972 by the International Association of Boards of Examiners in Optometry as part of a national endeavor to collect data on all optometrists in the United States. Approximately 96 percent of the 174 optometrists in South Carolina who were sent questionnaires responded. Thus the professional characteristics of an overwhelming majority of optometrists in South Carolina are described in the report. Tabulated data show the number of: (1) optometrists by county of primary practice; (2) active optometrists by age and sex; (3) active optometrists by school and year of graduation; (4) optometrists by activity status and by age; (5) active optometrists by principal form of employment and age; (6) practicing optometrists by years of practice and use of supplementary personnel; (7) practicing optometrists by primary specialty and age; and (8) active optometrists by type of activity and age. A sample questionnaire is included in the report. (JR)
