Subjects the league table of universities published in The Times and The Times Good University Guide in 1995 and 1996 to statistical and conceptual analyses. Shows the “measures” used by the compilers of the tables to be problematic in a number of technical respects. Shows that the number of underlying variables is largely reducible to a single factor which discriminates between pre‐1992 and post‐1992 universities. Casts serious doubt on the validity of the tables from both technical and conceptual perspectives.
