Abstract An analysis of structured flowcharts is presented, where size is measured by the number, $\textit{n},$ of decision nodes (IF-THEN-ELSE and DO-WHILE nodes). For all classes of structured flowcharts considered, the number of charts is approximately, $\textit{cn}-3/2\textit{γn},$ for large $\textit{n},$ where $\textit{c}>and$ $\textit{γ}$ are parameters that depend on the class. It is also shown that most large flowcharts consist of a short sequence of basic charts (IF-THEN-ELSE and DO-WHILE charts). The average length of such sequences is 2.5.
