THE 2020 US RELIGION CENSUS IS NEARING COMPLETION
The Operations Committee is now in the process of contacting hundreds of religious groups to secure their participation in the 2020 US Religion Census. Each group is asked to provide a count of congregations, members, adherents, and attendees in each county of the nation.
Special studies have been commissioned for groups that do not have central data offices, such as the Amish, Buddhist and Hindu groups, and non-denominational Christian churches.
The study is timed to coincide with the US census. National polls rarely give any religious data below the national level. This series gives a picture of county-level religious affiliation nationwide. The longevity of the study helps to identify trends and track religious change.
