†Only companies that score in the top half of their industry survey are listed as Most Admired. The rest are listed as contenders.
*This year companies whose industry scores are equal when rounded to two places will receive the same rank. i.e., they will tie. In cases of ties, companies are listed in alphabetical order. Prior year's rank was in petroleum refining.
