Abstract: AbstractA statistical study of the glitch population and the behavior of the glitch activity across the known population of neutron stars is presented. A constant ratio between the glitch activity and the spin-down rate $\dot{\nu }_{\rm {g}}$/|$\dot{\nu }$| = 0.010 ± 0.001 is consistent with the behavior of all rotation-powered pulsars and magnetars. This relation is dominated by large glitches (Δν ≳ 10 μ Hz), which occur at a rate directly proportional to |$\dot{\nu }$|. The only exception are the rotation-po…
