General Statistics

The Annual Statistical Report is compiled by the Office of Archives, Statistics, and Research. Information is received quarterly and annually from each of the denomination's thirteen divisions, who receive their information from the local conferences and missions by way of the union conference and mission offices. Additional information for the annual report is supplied by the officers and departmental directors of the world headquarters. Typically information for the year most recently completed is published in the late summer of the following year.

A summary of the quarterly reports received at the Office of Archives and Statistics from the world divisions is available about three months after the end of the quarter. These quarterly summaries contain information about the number of churches, companies, and membership for each of the thirteen divisions.
