We’ve taken Fortune’s “Americas’ Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies” list, analyzed it and broke it down by region, state, and notoriety of each company. We also included the methodology behind how the list was formed. You might just be surprised by where some of your favorite — and even your not-so-favorite — companies ranked in 2009.

Wow, what a bizarre list. Google is below Nutrisystem and Guess? But, they’re all ahead of Goldman Sachs?

I guess that when you play with the metrics you can make any data set dance.

Noteable ≠ Notable

Bizzaro, the larger the business is to begin with, the harder it is to make the list. For example, if you take a company of two employees and they hire two more, they’ve double their size. If Google hires two additional employees, no one would even notice. That they made the list at all is amazing.

Any company that meets criteria can make the list, because revenue is NOT positively or negatively related to employment numbers.

The change is a percentage change of REVENUE and not profit.

More profitable companies tend to have higher dividend payout ratio and thus are more “mainstream” through propaganda media.
