The National Congregations Study

The National Congregations Study is a major survey of U.S. congregations, carried out by interviewing knowledgeable leaders from each congregation on the work, programs, activities and changes within America's religious congregations. It was carried out in two waves. Wave 1 research was conducted in 1998; Wave 2 research was conducted in 2006-07. Site visitors can determine the basic facts on a diverse set of questions and topics by selecting among 10 study variables and generating frequency tables at either the congregational or individual member level.
