Summary

The Faith Communities Today 2010 National survey brings together 26 individual surveys of congregations. Twenty-four surveys were conducted by or for partner denominations and faith groups, representing 32 of the country's largest denominations and traditions. The common core questionnaire of the survey replicates more than 150 questions from the 2000, 2005 and 2008 surveys, plus a special section on the 2008 recession. This dataset contains the FACT 2010 data from Jewish congregations in North America.

The ARDA has added two additional variables to the original data set to enhance the users' experience on our site.
