AbstractThis contribution dedicated to the analysis of the magnetism of chemically peculiar (CP) stars of the upper Main Sequence. We use our own measurements and published data to compile a catalog of magnetic CP stars containing a total of 326 objects with confidently detected magnetic fields and 29 stars which are very likely to possess magnetic field. Our analysis shows that the number of magnetic CP stars decreases with increasing field strength in accordance with exponential law, hotter
