Abstract
A comparison of NASD and NYSE statistics on Arbitrator service 2000 - 2005 year-by-year with the results of SAC's previous survey (1994 - 1998) yields a few surprises. Two measures, appointment frequency and "assignment efficiency" (Arbitrator pool size/required panel slots), highlight differences between NASD, now on the party-choice NLSS (Neutral List Selection System), and NYSE, which has continued largely with staff appointments. NYSE has surpassed NASD in optimal use of its Arbitrator pool. NASD's assignment efficiency, though improved over the pre-NLSS days of staff panel appointments, dropped dramatically over the five-year span, apparently affected by both the sharp rise in case volume after 2002 and NASD's culling of its Arbitrator ranks early in the new Millennium.
