While some might guess Canada would the country from which the largest number of international 2019 CPA candidates came from (316), there are five countries that are home to more: Japan (2,248), India (1,392), China (1,079), Republic of Korea (1,074) and the United Arab Emirates (319). In total in 2019 there were 9,122 international candidates and 73,895 from the U.S. These and other interesting comparisons can be found in the report.
Data for the report was gathered from Board of Accountancy’s submissions of eligible candidate information into NASBA’s Gateway System, and then analyzed and assembled by editor Noel Winter Dedmon.
Sold in soft cover format, the 2019 Edition is available for $200. Orders can be placed through nasbareport.com.
