• Total awards records, and total counts for books and stories, count each nomination once, regardless of number of nominees (e.g. co-authors). Totals for nominees include counts for all co-nominees.
• There is some overlap among the three groups of nominees and the judges, which is why the total of all nominees and judges is greater than the number of unique person names.
• The figures show that the average nominated writer/editor/publisher has been nominated nearly 6 times; artist, more than 4 times.
• The nomination ratio for tv/film nominees is relatively low because for one major dramatic award, the Saturns, this Index has only winners, not other nominees.
• The average nominated novel and story (short fiction) has more nominations than the average anthology, collection, or nonfiction book; there are more awards that honor the former than the latter.
