Comparisons of the pro-Parris faction with Salem Village reinforces the likelihood of its declining economic situation after 1692.  In 1690, both the average and median ratios of the pro-Parris group were higher than those of Salem Village; by 1695, both measurements had fallen. By 1695, the average pro-Parris tax was lower than the Village average. (By comparing the names and corresponding taxes of the pro-Parris members of both tax lists, users will note the addition of fifteen pro-Parris petition signers who were listed as taxpayers in 1695 but not in 1690: all fifteen were below the village average tax and ten were below the village median tax.)
