Here are the tables for your selected variables. The first table shows information for all available years, followed by tables for single years. If one of your selected questions was asked only in one year, only the tables from that year are presented.
You may choose to view tables that reflect the percentage of congregations or that reflect the percentage of attendees. Click here for an explanation of this difference.
The percentages in these tables give the number of congregations in each cell divided by the number of congregations in the row. Not what you wanted? Click here to rotate the table (the rows will become the columns and the columns will become the rows).
