Revisiting the Universal Rarity Scale

By Q. David Bowers, Chairman Emeritus

The Universal Rarity Scale is mathematically sound in its progression and relationship among its divisions and is applicable to any series. Stated simply, it is a geometric progression of numbers, rounded off for convenience in use, with each category containing about twice as many members as the preceding category. The proposed Universal Rarity Scale uses a simple geometric progression of numbers, as 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, etc. (see the rightmost of each number pair):
Universal Rarity Scale-0 = None known
URS-1 = 1 known, uniqueURS-2 = 2 knownURS-3 = 3 or 4URS-4 = 5 to 8URS-5 = 9 to 16URS-6 = 17 to 32URS-7 = 33 to 64URS-8 = 65 to 124URS-9 = 125 to 249URS-10 = 250 to 499URS-11 = 500 to 999URS-12 = 1,000 to 1,999URS-13 = 2,000 to 3,999URS-14 = 4,000 to 7,999URS-15 = 8,000 to 15,999URS-16 = 16,000 to 31,999URS-17 = 32,000 to 64,999URS-18 = 65,000 to 124,999URS-19 = 125,000 to 249,999URS-20 = 250,000 to 499,999URS-21 = 500,000 to 999,999URS-22 = 1,000,000 to 1,999,999URS-23 = 2,000,000 to 3,999,999URS-24 = 4,000,000 to 7,999,999URS-25 = 8,000,000 to 15,999,999URS-26> = same progression
