Comparative Statistics 2011

The Comparative Statistics report is published annually in the fall and summarizes data on membership, finances and ministers provided by each congregation to the Office of the General Assembly via the Session Annual Statistical Report. The report compares annual statistics to show trends in areas such as membership gains and losses, receipts and expenditures, and number of ministers.

  1. Re: PCUSA - Wikipedia reports: The denomination reported a loss of 61,047 members (−2.9%) in 2010, a loss of 63,804 in 2011 and had a membership of 1,952,287 at the end of 2011. No report yet on LOSS for 2012, but I am reporting a loss for 2013. Your message from General Assembly PCUSA requesting call in to senators for more liberalization of Immigration Laws. I called in and asked for stiffer laws and penalties - and now I also report I AM GONE - NO LONGER A STUPID PRESBYTERIAN - you are down one member (at least) in 2013. Can't wait for Wikipedia's 2013 report of PCUSA losses.
