TAS : Stats : WISE : 2004 Analysis : WISE Stats, 2001 and 2004 - Categories


WISE Membership by Category

The table below shows tallies for each category in the 2001 and 2004 WISE directories. (In some cases, I've made insignificant changes to the category names to group them properly - for example, I've changed the category called "Hubbard Colleges" from 2001 to "Hubbard Colleges of Administration", to match the category name in the 2004 directory.)
