We present a study on magnetic cataclysmic variables (polars) using the collected data from the literature. These parameters (mass, radius, magnetic field intensity, mass transfer rate, etc.) and the relations between them are important to understand their nature, to explain the observed properties of them and to test the current evolutionary models.
