Research & Statistics

The goal of research and statistics is to provide the church with information about its context, congregations, members, leadership, directions, and ongoing mission. Employing the best research procedures that are available we provide unbiased data and analysis for use by national leaders, dioceses and local congregations. This information is intended to help in the work of the church by helping us understand who we are, the situations where we work, and the progress we are making.

Some of our primary tasks include:
· We oversee and staff the Parochial Report and Diocesan Report processes
· We provide statistical feedback on membership to local congregations and dioceses
· We provide community demographic data to local congregations and dioceses
· We analyze membership, attendance and giving trends for the Episcopal Church
· We interpret changes in the context in which our churches minister
· We investigate sources of congregational growth and revitalization
· We conduct specialized research projects on areas such as leadership, education, and mission priorities
· We provide resources to assist Episcopal Church leaders in their efforts to work on God’s project in the world
