Gallup announced the results of its survey of the most trusted professions in the United States in 2016.

Nurses topped the list for the 15th year in a row, with 84% of the public rating their standards as “high” or “very high” when it comes to honesty and ethical standards. Congress came in at the bottom of the list, with a majority of Americans (59%) rating honesty and ethical standards as “low” or “very low.”

Healthcare providers earned four spots in the top five most trusted professions this year.

  1. Nurses (84%)
  2. Pharmacists (67%)
  3. Medical doctors (65%)
  4. Dentists (59%)

Nurses have topped the list every year but one since Gallup first asked about them in 1999.
