Abstract: Russian governors, quasi-saturation (estimated 65% of universe). No estimate of extent of general Russian administrative persons attaining any high civilian administrative post (whether the person was in fact a career civil administrator, a military officer, or other). These are the types of posts which would ordinarily have been assigned to a holder of one of the top four civil ranks (chin), excluding diplomatic and Imperial Court posts (except insofar as such posts, like military posts, formed part of the background of the appointees to high administrative posts). No estimate of the extent of saturation can be made, except to indicate that the persons coded tended to be the most prominent members of the universe. But because prominence (in terms of selection for biographical dictionaries) was closely linked to office in the Russian Empire, it is thought that the sample represents a considerable proportion of the universe studied.
