I have no idea how old this data is. I asked on USPSA forum if it was current and then the site went down immediately after. I smell a cover up!

The data shown above is not that outdated. Here's counts for the production division based on classification data from Sep 2014.

GM - 105
M - 355
A - 706
B - 1881
C - 3599
D - 1735
Not to be confused with ZachJ

Yay, PRK! Our fucked up state has the most USPSA members, but soon will ban velcro inner/outer "assault" belts.

As of 2014, per Doodie, the Production classification distribution is as follows:

 

GM 1.24%

M (or higher) 5.4%

A (or higher) 13.9%

B (or higher) 36.3%

C (or higher) 79.2%

D (or higher) Every fucking one.

 

This is actually interesting data.  Mostly.

It becomes interesting now that they are fucking with the classifiers.

 

If it's so easy to make GM why are less than 1.5% of people who try it able to do it?

I'm curious where these stats come from. I know USPSA released the breakdown once years ago but it'd be interesting to see what it is now.

It's interesting that in a decade or so, the bar has been raised 10% (...inferring this from the recent classifier update).

 

It's interesting that so many people who spend so much (time & money) shooting USPSA do not get close to shooting 75% as fast as the best out there (A Class).  1 in 5.  

 

It's interesting that the USPSA classification is so closed and secret and that leadership seems just totally set on not letting membership look behind the curtain.  

 

What should happen is that this all classification data, which I'm sure is digital and not in some notebook in some low rent office (Right?!), should be made available monthly to members.  Some stats drones should download it and come up with a number of proposals if for nothing else other than making the process simple enough to update monthly, etc.  They would have the data to prove out their algorithms, etc. 

 

I'll always want to know how well I shoot compared to the best ever.  The classification system is one giant, long-term postal match.  But, I'm sure it could be better.  Because math.

From a classification data file. I don’t remember how I got it now though.

If I remember correctly I got the classification update file from HQ and imported it into a database. From there it was easy to write queries to produce counts like those posted way back then. I’ll see if I can get an updated file.

It would be more interesting if it were a division that mattered

Let me translate: It’s sort of like PCC and Open except the skills of the shooter actually matter.

Shit this is simple, just find out how many members there are total and divide it by 57.

I don’t think it works that way. You can’t use that theory on Mexicans. Cali and Texas have way more than Michigan

I think a very large percentage of the "statistic" membership  don't shoot much or simply maintain their memberships. I live in a major metropolitan city within a reasonable drive of probably 5 USPSA matches. You'll notice the same core of shooters at just about every match which tells me the active participants (those who shoot bi-monthly and up) are perhaps much lower. I'm guessing the GM and M numbers of people who shoot semi regularly or regularly are way WAY higher.
