Reporting on the number of members in other cryonics organizations can be misleading (see CEO Statement on Membership Statistics). Below are graphs showing the number of Alcor Cryopreservation Members and patients at year end since inception. Patients were added to the graph below in the year they became Alcor patients. In the Complete List of Alcor Cryopreservations, patients are recorded by year of legal death. The year of legal death and year of transfer to care at Alcor are not the same in some cases, so patient numbers recorded in particular years may differ between these two sources.
