Hi David,

Here's what's in the database for today (lot of variability there). Perhaps folks are splitting the group:

100 + consistent observations

David,

You're right, I think. And after a 100 + observations we all hope you are consistent in how groups,especially, are counted. That way your k - factor will correct most of the group splitting.  Once you get used to a way of counting, stick with it ;-)  Here's how the k -factors look for today, so just tally the Ra number (W * k) to get an overall idea:
