    Ok, "sects" had sounded quite odd to me, and after Gillnetter's "sectors" I'm totally confused.

    The moment I saw "sects" I thought that it should have been "strata". (or to some "stratas" - but it doesn't change my point).

    I'd like to hear your opinions on this and thanks for your replies in advance.

    "Sects" was definitely inappropriate. I would have gone for:

    Sectors
    Areas
    Levels
    Layers
    Sections

    Well, from what I infer from the op's sentence, it should have been "classes". But, to some, it would not sound neutral (politically), so I still think that "strata" would still be an appropriate replacement. As far as I can't see "strata" on your list, I take it you don't think it as an option, do you?
