  Fool.com: Index Center, Wilshire 5000
Started in 1974, the Wilshire 5000 is often referred to as the Total Stock Market Index because it seeks to track the returns of practically all publicly traded, U.S.-headquartered stocks that trade on the major exchanges.
The Wilshire 5000 is currently composed of more than 6000 companies, but the Wilshire 6307 just doesn't have that certain zing to it, so we're stuck with 5000.
However, investors in a Wilshire 5000-based index fund should be aware that the expense ratio for a fund containing every listed company is likely to have higher transaction costs than less broad indexes, thus an investor should expect slightly higher fees with a Wilshire 5000 index investment.

The Wilshire 5000, by contrast, is an index made up of virtually every publicly-traded stock in the U.S., large, medium-sized, small and minuscule.
It's called the Wilshire 5000 because that was  the number of stocks in the index when it was created in 1974.
I'm sure you could easily find 15-year periods during which the Wilshire had the higher return, although in general I would expect their long-term performances to be pretty close over periods of 10 years or more.
