About Muckety scores

Muckety scores use connections to measure influence.

If someone has a score of 99, it means that he or she has more connections and influence than 99 percent of the others in our listings of the most influential people in America.

Rankings reflect the scope of the Muckety database, which focuses primarily on U.S. business, government, politics and entertainment.

Foreign dignataries and foreign business leaders are excluded from our influence scoring, as are people who are deceased or criminally charged.

Although we don’t yet rank most businesses or organizations, we do rate the Muckety of Fortune 1000 boards. This rating was derived by compiling average influence for directors of each company, then comparing it to other Fortune 1000 companies. Ratings reflect directors’ overall influence in all spheres, not just within the specified company.

Relationships and influence are in constant flux. We add new data daily and regularly refine our measurements. If you believe we have overlooked important information or miscalculated, let us know.

If you are interested in a custom influence search, based on location or field of interest, please contact us.

    soooooooooooo; when Hillary is finally indicted/ charged we won’t have to be subjected to her 99 rating any longer? She becomes a ZERO? How appropriate!!!!

  • #5.   Laurie Bennett 04.19.2016

    Hillarious(sic) that you feel “subjected” to Hillary’s Muckety score. Can’t imagine how many times you’re victimized in the course of a really bad day.

    Donald Trump, btw, is also a 99.
