Dear Kimberly
Thanks for sharing the PMI Fact File Stats

PMI membership is at its lowest point in the last 12 months. DASM an DASSM certifications are showing the most growth in the same period.

Interesting to see the growth of the Disciplined Agile certifications. I am curious about the number of PMP vs active memberships. It was my understanding to hold any PMI certification you needed to be an active member. Is this not the case?

Not at all, Lisa. You can earn and maintain PMI certifications without being a PMI member. There are certainly advantages for certification holders to be a member: you get discounts on certification applications and renewal, as well you get access to's webinars for PDUs.

Thank you for clarifying!

For those of you who like to do trends analysis, I've collated the monthly data into a Google Drive spreadsheet and illustrated with a graph. Enjoy!

Thank you for sharing this information.

Thanks for this data and @Stephane Parent for the Trend Analysis. I was curious. Is there data/totals on individuals who have all 3 PMP, PgMP, and PfmP?

The PMI registry used to allow you to review people with multiple certifications. Unfortunately, this is not easily possible anymore. I suggest you check PfMP holders then see what else they hold (there are only 390 in the US.)

Good initiative in publicize from times to times these figures. Thank you for sharing.
