Which Causes Do Most Nonprofits Serve?

infographic-causes-with-most-nonprofits.pngWe wondered: which cause areas have the most nonprofits working in them? And which have the fewest?

We turned to our database to find the answers. Using National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities (NTEE) codes, we identified the five categories (NTEE major groups) and subcategories (NTEE decile groups) that have the most nonprofits dedicated to them and the five categories and subcategories that have the fewest.

Our latest infographic shows what we found. Take a look and see if the results are what you expected.
