Abstract: The 1-set contractions and strict set contractions of a bounded, closed, convex subset C of a Banach space X are generalizations of the nonexpansive mappings and the Banach contractions of C, defined in terms of the measure of noncompactness of bounded subsets of X. Vidossich has shown that ``almost all'' nonexpansive mappings of C into itself have fixed points. In this note we establish a similar generic result for the 1-set contractions of C.
