Demographic Analysis of Church Health in Germany

  • Demographic Analysis of Church Health in Germany

    In order to gain better understanding of the age distribution and development of the Seventh-Day-Adventist Church in Germany, Dr. László Szabó and Dirk Schomburg conducted a statistical analysis of the number of members and movement data in 2015. To find out how the age distribution has changed over the course of time and to be able to make accurate projections of future developments, most different data was collected and combined. Out of these data, a detailled analysis was generated, that depicts the trends in membership and presents and Age- and Youth-Quotient, as well as growth and strain classes of the churches. The results were given to the conferences and unions.
