VO tries to reflect the performance of the CRSP US Mid Cap Index. CRSP’s weighting methodology differs from the S&P. Consequently, the average market for a stock in the underlying index is $9 billion, which is less than the $62 billion in the S&P 500 and a little more than the $4 billion for the S&P 400.

That group combines for over 69% of the ETF’s sector weight. IJH has a beta of 1.03 against the S&P 500 and a three-year standard deviation of 15.35%, according to iShares data.
