Since the foundation of the International Statistical Institute, the number and the average age of its members have undergone some important fluctuations (see graph), owing to successive changes in the Statutes and to disturbances caused by the two world wars. The data compiled have made it possible to estimate the mortality of the members and its variations over the years. It has also been possible to see how the distribution of new members by nationality and by kind of principal occupation has been changed. The facts of the present situation have thrown light on future prospects: the present election rules tend to limit to twelve the annual number of new members. It is suggested that it may be reasonable to modify the rules in force, in order that the number of International Statistical Institute members may follow the progress of Statistics in the world. Two proposals are made the effect of which is to admit yearly about twenty new members during the coming years. The results to be expected from such changes are analysed in order to enable the members of the Institute to judge their utility.
