Maps from the 2000 Study

The maps below are all created from data based on the Religious Congregations and Membership Study: 2000. The maps that are specific to a denomination or faith group represent those groups that participated in U.S. Religion Census 2000 who have at least on 1,000,000 adherents or have congregations in at least 50% of US counties. If you would like a map for another group that participated in U.S. Religion Census 2000 but is not listed below, you may create the map at the ARDA here.
