TOTAL        133  =   21     28   +  84                           4150

S/P TOTALS:   40      12     15      33
Exclusively:           2      5      18
Key:
    Large:    4 octaves or more     (47-59 bells)
    Medium:   3 to 3 1/2 octaves    (35-44 bells)
    Small:    2 to 2 1/2 octaves    (23-32 bells) 

In the Total column (the leftmost column of numbers), each number shows how many non-traditional carillons of any size are in that state or province.

In the size classification columns (the next three columns of numbers), each number shows how many non-traditional carillons in the state or province for that row are in the size category for that column.  A period (.) is used instead of a zero (0) as a place-holder in these columns for better readability.

The figures in the TNr column are the Total Numbers of bells in the carillons of each state.

Below the table, the row labeled "S/P TOTALS" shows how many states or provinces have entries in the columns above.  The row labeled "Exclusively" shows how many states or provinces have non-traditional carillons of ONLY that one size.

For example, there are 40 states/provinces which have non-traditional carillons; 12 of those have a total of 21 "large carillons" among them, but only 2 of those 12 have no instruments of other sizes.  This implies that there are 10 states/provinces which not only have at least one "large carillon" but also have at least one of some smaller size.

Other facts:

S/P with instruments of all three sizes:   GA, MI, NC, OH, SC

Average number of carillons per state:   3.3

Average number of bells in carillons per state:   104

Average size of carillon:  31 bells
