Slipping of active faults, under some conditions, generates surface rupture which can damage the structures in the rupturing zones. One of the key core is a basic characteristic of surface rupture are systematically summarized and analyzed, especially the statistical analysis of surface rupture width, this paper on width of geological permanent deformation detailed statistics, analysis, it is concluded that: (1) fracture zone width statistical method gives the surface rupture permanent geological deformation of the upper limit of the width value and can be used to quantify the average value; (2) profile trench statistical method to determine the surface rupture width more economical and reliable, such as to establish of the scarps vertical height (H) and maximum deformation with the formula of width (WD), or strong deformation zone width average value and several times the standard deviation of the formula.
