Rankings of Universities: who uses whose citation data?

Writing about web page http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/story.asp?storycode=412341

I was just looking at Uni ranking methodologies after reading the cover article in today's THE.  THE will be using TR data and said they were going to normalise citation data by subject as part of their new methodology, which sounds interesting since I was asked at a departmental visit today, about how they can tell whether their "scores" are good or normal for their disicpline. I'm not sure how to look up the average H index or article citations numer for a particular discipline.

Shanghai's World ranking uses TR data as well, and Webometrics uses GScholar. QS who were the providers of THE's ranking have used Scopus data since 2007.
