Key College of Cardinals demographics post the consistory vs. what the stats were when Benedict XVI was elected pope in April 2005. Notice, the rapid increase in the size of the College and the number of non-elector cardinals. I have tried to determine, in the case of the curialist, who will be created cardinal deacons and who might get created cardinal priests. But, this is a guess. We will not know until the consistory. That also applies to any pro hac vice titles allocated.
