What types of people live near my congregation? Which religious traditions are present in my community? Where can I find data on Americans’ religious behaviors? How does my congregation compare to others in the United States?
If you or your church are asking questions like these, you would benefit from a visit to Association of Religion Data Archives congregational resource center. They have FAQs, links to dozens of resources, and even host seminars to help participants better use their tools to navigate their archive of data. They also provide external links to other data-driven resources for congregations.
