---- Acknowledgements -----

We are grateful to the Midwestern Pharmacy Research Consortium, especially John Schommer at the University of Minnesota, College of Pharmacy and Akeem A. Yusuf a doctoral candidate, for making the merged data of the National Pharmacist Workforce Surveys available to us. Tanya Avilova, Jane Lee, and, especially, Chenzi Xu ably helped with data cleaning and other parts of this project. The views expressed herein are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Bureau of Economic Research.

---- Disclosure of Financial Relationships for Claudia Goldin -----

My work on this project was not externally funded. Research assistance was provided through my general research support at Harvard University, but most of the work was done directly by the authors. However, a previous grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation supported my work on this topic during a leave year in 2010.
