A hooklength formula for the number of rim hook tableaux is used to obtain an inequality relating the number of rim hook tableaux of a given shape to the number of standard Young tableaux of the same shape. This provides an upper bound for a certain family of characters of the symmetric group. The analogues for shifted shapes and rooted trees are also given. Bibliography: 13 titles.
