NCLS Attender Data 2011

Publication Date



Attender data from the NCLS 2011 Survey. The survey offers three Attendance measures:
Young adult retention - the extent to which the children of the faith community remain regular attenders when they grow into young adulthood (15 + years).
Newcomers - the extent to which newcomers make up the congregation and whether they are new to church life, from another church or from another denomination in the last 5 years.
Attendance change - the extent to which attendance numbers have changed over the last five years through the inflow and outflow of people. 

The dataset is available as one PASW Statistics Data file (v.18) accompanied by the codebook in PDF format.
