    hundred-profile study

    Please set me clear on the following in bold.

    For example, researchers...recently conducted a hundred-year profile study of 75 CEOs of major league baseball teams.

    Does it just mean "researchers studied 75 CEOs who have led major league baseball teams for 100 years"?

    Thank you.

    He studied all of the CEOs of all of the teams over the past 100 years. Obviously, there are no CEOs who led a team for an entire century.
