What Is The Russell 3000 Index ?

The index consists of 3,000 stocks comprising 98% of the total equity market capitalization. The Russell 3000 consists of the Russell 1000 (large-cap index) and the Russell 2000 (bottom 2000 stocks which are small-cap stocks). The indexes are based purely on size and not dependent upon subjective committee selections.
