Average word count of a dissertation

For some reason, I always thought a doctoral thesis is about 100,000 words in length (and I’ve taken that number as a reference for my book as well). However, I wanted to test this assumption, so I ran a poll about the topic. From the comments, I learned that word count limits are common in the UK (mostly), and that they differ across disciplines.

You can find the poll and its wake here:
