The present status of experimental results for the magnitudes of Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix elements is reviewed and used for a unitarity test. The matrix is found to be unitary within ±1.8 standard deviations. The matrix violates CP-symmetry and the size of its CP-violation, as derived from only magnitude measurements and unitarity, is in perfect agreement with the observed CP-violations in K and B meson decays.
