AbstractTaking the 13-point smoothed monthly sunspot number, R-i, and the deviation of the 13 associated monthly sunspot numbers from the smoothed one, D-i, as a number-pair describing the global level of sunspot activity, the evolution of the level is statistically studied for the period from the month which is just 48. months before the minimum to the minimum in the descending phase, using the observed data of Solar Cycles 10 to 22. Our results show (1) for 46 months (94%) of the studied 49 months it is found that for a given month, the distribution of the 13 pairs which come from the 13 solar cycles on a log R-i similar to D-i plane may be fitted by a straight line with a correlation coefficient larger than the critical one at confidence level alpha = 5%, and for 36 months (73%) the fitting is even better, for alpha = 1%; (2) time variations of these two parameters and their correlations in the studied period can be described respectively by functions of time, whose main trends may be expressed by a linear or simple curvilinear function; (3) the evolutionary path of the level of sunspot activity may be represented by a logarithmic function as log R-i = 0.704 ln D-i - 0.291.
