Nilpotency class
Up to isomorphism
In the table here, a row value of means we are looking at the groups of order . The entry in a cell is the number of isomorphism classes of groups of order for which the function takes the value indicated in the column. Note that, for greater visual clarity, all zeros that occur after the last nonzero entry in a row are omitted and the corresponding entry is left blank.

Up to isoclinism
We give below information on the number of equivalence classes under the equivalence relation of being isoclinic groups, for each nilpotency class. The equivalence classes under isoclinism are also called Hall-Senior families. For visual clarity, the cells with zero entries are omitted. We know that isoclinic groups have same nilpotency class, with the exception of the trivial group (which has class zero) being isoclinic to nontrivial abelian groups (which have class 1).

Interaction of multiple arithmetic functions
Nilpotency class-cum-derived length
Note that in considering the possibilities here, we use the fact that derived length is logarithmically bounded by nilpotency class; explicitly, the derived length is at most where is the greatest integer function and is the nilpotency class. On the other hand, derived length gives no upper bound on nilpotency class for derived length at least 2.
