Abstract: It is shown that the suspension order of the -fold cartesian product of real projective -space is less than or equal to the suspension order of the -fold symmetric product of and greater than or equal to , where and satisfy and . In particular has suspension order , and for fixed the suspension orders of the spaces are unbounded while their stable suspension orders are constant and equal to .
