Notes

  1. Chart:Expense ratio

  2. The higher than average turnover in 2005 was due to a change in the fund's tracking index.
  3. The Fund CR (Commission Ratio) is derived by dividing the brokerage commissions paid by the fund into a fund's average net assets. Brokerage commission expense is the only transaction expense that can be quantified. Additional transaction costs, such as spread costs and market impact costs, must be estimated. See table for data, derived from annual reports and EDGAR NSAR filings:

    • Calvert Social Index through December 16, 2005.
    • FTSE4Good US Select Index thereafter.
