Congregations in America
Studying congregations can be challenging because there is not a comprehensive list of every Christian and non-Christian congregation in the United States. This makes simple sampling techniques impossible. The National Congregations Study (NCS), however, solved this issue using innovative methods to create the first nationally representative sample of congregations. The goal of this learning module is to explore a nationally representative survey of congregations in the United States to learn more about this central feature of American religion.
