Kanshudo vocab frequency data is taken from EDICT/JMdict (see Credits
for more information).
EDICT classifies words into about 50 'bands' of frequency. Each band contains about 600 words,
so a total of about 30,000 words are classified by frequency.
A frequency band of 1 indicates the word is one of the 600 most common words in Japanese.
Bands 1-8 contain roughly the most common 5,000 words.
Kanshudo classifies all kanji into seven rings, based on frequency and usage in the JLPT. The rings
are used to create your
Kanji Mastery Score and personalized Kanji Wheel
option to select words containing only kanji in specific rings.
