Last week I introduced some numbers from a high balcony.  Let’s break down those numbers into regions.

    Loving this series of posts. And glad you have energy around data-crunching because the results are fascinating.

    Adding the 5 regional total numbers together, I got 149,875 for 2015 membership. 2014 numbers published by UUA state 158,186. That’s over 8000 people lost in a year or about 5%. Am I missing something here or are we loosing members quite rapidly?

      We are losing a large segment of congregations. And we’re growing in others, particularly in the South. We’ll look at those numbers in coming Fridays…

        We are losing a large segment (Edited: of adult members in various regions and sizes of) congregations? I look forward to knowing more.
