Lutheran Growth, a Hundred Years of Data

The U.S. Religion Census has been conducted six times by non-government coalitions since 1952, the last three by the Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies (ASARB). But between 1890 and 1936, five such counts were conducted by the U.S. census bureau. The 1916 edition is now available on our Lists & Rankings page. We have used its data to help commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, which gave rise to the Lutheran Church.  
About the time of Protestantism’s 400th birthday, the United States Census of Religious Bodies for 1916 was released. Sixteen groups contained “Lutheran” as part of their census-listed names. Their information has been pulled together for this century-long look at Lutheran growth in the United States.
