We currently have more than 600 different NTEE codes to choose from, and we get requests for new ones on a regular basis. We weigh a number of factors when choosing to add a code:
Are there numerous organizations that would fit into the category? (We currently classify over 2 million organizations.)
Do current alternatives provide sufficient detail for policy-makers, analysts, and practitioners?
Is there an important public policy reason to add a code? A code for "Global warming and climate change" is likely to be added soon.
You can help us keep our coding system up-to-date and relevant. Let us know your perspective:
Do you have a sense about the number of organizations that ought to be classified in a category that you are proposing?
Why would current options not suffice?
Thank you for your feedback!
