Annual publication features enhanced reporting and statistical data from the 2013 Uniform CPA Examination.

NASHVILLE, TENN., (February 6, 2014) — The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) announces the release of the 2013 Uniform CPA Examination Candidate Performance Book.  This year’s publication features comprehensive statistical data from all four (4) testing windows of the Uniform CPA Examination for 2013.

Released annually, the publication serves as a valuable resource to top-ranked colleges and universities, accounting firms, researchers, academia, university accounting programs, corporate recruiters, students and prospective certified public accountants. The publication allows institutions to compare their school’s overall performance to peer institutions and against the national average. Professors benefit from the ability to assess the overall performance of their accounting programs and accounting students. The publication also aids accounting firms and corporate recruiters as they source and develop talent, and assists students and aspiring CPAs in their research on top-ranked accounting programs.

In addition to the summary data points, significant emphasis has been placed on enhancing the demographics reported throughout the publication’s two-page jurisdictional dashboards. As a result of this effort, approximately 95% of gender-specific data is captured in the 2013 publication, representing a 15% increase compared to previous publications. Featured tables also provide a more granular view of individual exam event and performance data.

Featured tables in the 2013 Uniform CPA Examination Candidate Performance Book include:

  • 2013 Annual and Quarterly Summaries
  • Jurisdiction Summary Statistics
  • Top 30 Countries (By number of candidates)
  • Demographic Trending (Age, Gender, Degree)
  • 2013 Institution Rankings by first-time Examination Performance

The 2013 Uniform CPA Examination Candidate Performance Book is available for purchase, in both softback ($150) and eBook ($100) versions.
