The field strength numbers are computed as the arithmetic and geometric means respectively of the masterpoint holdings for all ACBL members in a field. Granted, the masterpoint system partly rewards longevity and frequency of play and it has suffered from grade inflation, a problem significantly exacerbated in recent years by triple point charity games. But still masterpoint holdings must have some correlation with skill level and in a Rumsfeldian sort of way it is the ranking system we have if not the one we want to have.
