Clergy Numbers and Compensation by Gender

The number of all male and female clergy, as well as compensation of church employees by gender, is currently best identified by the Church Pension Group. Selected documents and links to the Church Pension Group may be found here. Efforts are currently underway to analyze data in the OTM Portfolio in relationship to data in the CPG database and the Parochial Report. Those results will be posted here when they are ready.
