The important thing is not the number of memebers, but the number who have logged in within the last 12 months, my bet is that number is less than 25%

I would also like to know what the ratio of female to male models is and female to male photographers.

Riding on the Gotterdammerung. Down and down she goes. Where she stops no one knows.

Moderators don't know, and as Matt tends not to be stats-orientated we doubt if even he knows.

Matt does not consider frequency of logging in or percentages to be to be particularly important
but he has provided a Last Login date on every profile for those members who do.

Female to male Model ratios can be worked out by using the Search facility if anyone has the time.
No provision was made on the database for Photographers' gender so that one cannot be determined.

Correct. The database did not start at zero and has been reset a couple of times since late 2002.
A simple Search reveals just under 25,000 UK Model and 10,000 UK Photographer accounts.
(Above figures do not include Inactive / Pending / Suspended accounts, which do not show up in Search Results)

A crude measure using search options is the number of models with 5+ feedback logged in since Jan 1st is about 1850 and number of togs with 1+ feedback is around 4500.
Which looks about right as the ratio of blue models names to red tog names logged in is always about 1:3 ish in the "whose logged on" list.
So (my guess of) active (eg working) live (eg logged in this year) members is around 6000..... all other members are still using the portfolio hosting facilities but just inactive on the site. .

I once worked out the number of models who were 5'8", size 6 or 8.
Took quite a long time.

I think it was over 1,000 in the UK on PS.

That was my fashion model list sorted.
It's not Fine Art just because it's in Black and White.

Just did a search for all UK based models, returns a total 24,432 profiles but that doesn't account for those who haven't logged in since 2007.

9920 UK photographer profiles, similarly includes abandoned profiles from 2007.

Can't be arsed doing it for the rest of the world, if someone else wants to and wants to save time, do a search by country, select a random page in the first set of results then in the address bar scroll to the end where it says start= followed by a number and randomly increment that number until you don't return a result. You'll figure it out.
