NRMP® has updated Charting Outcomes™: Demographic Characteristics of Applicants in the Main Residency Match® and SOAP® and Charting Outcomes™: Demographic Characteristics of Applicants in the Specialties Matching Service® reports to include data for the 2024 appointment year.

The goal of the applicant demographic reports is to advance the understanding and encourage discussion about the relationships among the unique characteristics of applicants, the specialties they pursue, and their experience in the Match.
