I thought it would be based on the average daily volume of the population - The higher the level of stocks , the greater the volume of options. But I compared the volume of option trades some populations with different APP 4000000 avg daily trades and it seems that the activity of choice for one may be very low and the other high.

Mostly volatility , some programs actually run scans to see what contracts are above average volume . MedlinePlus This may presage stock movements . usually first identified by abnormal call / put volume .
