Weighted fractional count (WFC) for each institution is shown to two decimal places only. When two or more institutions have the same WFC, their positions are determined by the thousandth place (or beyond).

These results are based on the most recent data available. Owing to continual refinements of the data, the figures in the database are liable to change and might differ to those printed in the supplements.
