Date from establishments indicate, though, that the median numbers are 50 full-time and 2 part-time employees (Dun and Bradstreet, 1995:26). The reason for this apparent discrepancy is that, although there are many very small organizations, most of the people in the United States are employed by a relatively small number of very large organizations (Marsden, cook and Knoke, 1996:50). As the preceding statistics suggest, counting the number of members in an organization is always challenging as whether temporary workers should be counted with the permanent workers or should be excluded, the number of part-time employees should be counted in the same way as the full time employees or some other way. The main point here is that the size is an important aspect of the diversity in the phenomenon of organization.
