We have carried out an analysis of magnetic data in 69 uranium, 7 neptunium and 4 plutonium ferromagnets with the spin fluctuation theory developed by Takahashi (Y. Takahashi, J. Phys. Soc. Jpn. ${bf 55}$, 3553 (1986)). The basic and spin fluctuation parameters of the actinide ferromagnets are determined and the applicability of the spin fluctuation theory to actinide $$5f$$ system has been discussed. Itinerant ferromagnets of the $$3d$$ transition metals and their intermetallics follow a generalized Rhodes-Wohlfarth relation $${p_{rm eff}}/{p_{rm s}}{,}{propto}{,}({T_{rm C}}/{T_0})^{-3/2}$$. Here, $$p_{rm s}$$, $$p_{rm eff}$$, $$T_{rm C}$$, and $$T_0$$ are the spontaneous and effective magnetic moments, the Curie temperature and the width of spin fluctuation spectrum in energy space, respectively. The same relation is satisfied for $${T_{rm C}}/{T_0}< 1.0$$ in the most of the actinide ferromagnets.
