A New Demographic Profile of Adventists In North America
If the median age of the general population in the United States is 36 and in Canada 35, then why is the median age of the million Adventists in North American 51? If the median age reported by the other world divisions of the Seventh-day Adventist church are hovering in the mid 30s, why is the graying of Adventism so pronounced in the North American Division?
Here are some of the other questions this report answers:
What is the age profile of Adventists in North America? Is there an increase or decline coming in the enrollment of Adventist elementary schools, academies & colleges? What are the worship service attendance trends among Adventists in North America? How are people becoming Seventh-day Adventists today? What are the marital status trends among Adventists in North America? How many singles? Never married? Divorced? How does this compare to the U.S. Census? How have the income levels changed since a demographic study was conducted almost two decades ago? What are the occupation trends and how have they changed over time? What is the percentage of native-born vs. immigrants in Adventist membership and how has that changed through the years? What is our ethnic mix currently? Where do church members live (Rural, suburban, urban) and where have they been moving over the past two decades? How does that compare to the U.S. Census data?
Pastors and volunteer leaders will find this research report extremely insightful as they seek to understand the people to whom they minister. And if you are a conference, union or health-care or educational institution administrator, this research report provides the Adventist trends you will find in no other place to lead your organization well.
