Introduction: The source for Oblate statistics is the database of members in the General Secretariat at the General House, updated and adjusted with reports which come in from the various Oblate provinces, delegations and missions. The records of first vows, final vows, ordinations, departures and deaths which are received daily in Rome go to make up the annual report.

For various reasons, these records sometimes do not arrive at the Secretariat in a timely fashion. The numbers included in this publication, especially related to scholastics, vows, ordinations and departures, reflect not only the statistics of the year that has just passed, but also of some previous years.

* Of whom 45 are bishops, 1 is an Apostolic Prefect.

B1 = perpetually professed Brothers,
B2 = Brothers who are still in the first formation.
PD = Oblate Brothers who are permanent deacons.
