Important New Study Released: 2010 Religion Census: Religious Congregations and Membership

On May 2, 2010 a new study was released by the Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies. This may not excite a lot of people, but it should! The study continues a tradition begun in 1952 that compiles congregational membership data for each county in the United States. The 2010 effort is the most comprehensive in the series and provides a portrait of religious change in America. Here's link to a brief overview of the study that I hope will whet your appetite for more.
