    I am curious if AHIMA has any statistics that I can reference for the number of RHIT, RHIA, CCS and CCS-P over the past 4-5 years?  An associate of mine is interested in seeing what the growth of the various credentials looks like over the past few years.  This may be published data that I have missed or am not looking in the right area to access.  Does anyone have a direction to point me?
    Thanks in advance for any assistance!!

    Cheryl - From the AHIMA website ( you can select the Certification tab at the top, then Newly Credentialed. Fill out the form and the information will be displayed at the bottom. You can choose by date, credential, state. It is pretty interesting.
