The hypothesis of universility implies four universal ratios among the six usually defined thermodynamic critical amplitudes. Theoretical information is presented on the values of these ratios for short ranged Ising and Heisenberg systems and for dipolar systems, and experiments are discussed. Additional ratios are also mentioned.
