Recent trends in the development of design standards have been toward the use of probabilistic limit states concepts. The development of such criteria requires that a large amount of data be examined by the appropriate standards writing oranizations. This paper describes basic statistical information that currently is available for developing probability-based limit states design criteria for wood structures. A number of problem areas are examined where additional study appears necessary or desirable prior to implementing such criteria in practice.
