Observer Affiliations Table

The following is a list of variable star organization codes as given in column 20 ("Observer Affiliation") in files downloaded via our Data Download facility.

Please note that for data prior to 2011, this field will reflect the organization from which the AAVSO received the data (e.g. AFOEV or RASNZ).  After 2011, this field will reflect the observer's own stated affiliation if they submit their own observations via WebObs and have chosen to select an Affiliation other than the AAVSO.
