IMLS Library Search & Compare tool
A few people asked how the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) calculated who is in a library's comparison group and therefore part of your library's Mean (average) and Quartile ranking. The information offered from IMLS states:
"Four sets of groups of similar libraries were constructed based on different sets of variables and using a statistical method that minimizes variation within groups and maximizes variation between groups. The variables used for the Staff Cluster are: MLS librarians, other librarians, and other staff."
I hope this helps.
