February 2009 Statistics
1,050 – no net change from previous year
UUA adult members (including international congregations)
164,656 members, down 74 members from previous year
UUA adult members (U.S. only)
159,732 members, up 28 members from previous year
According to the UU World article, “the previous year the UUA grew by 0.7 percent, or 1,099 members, in the United States. In the past five years U.S. membership increases have ranged from 851 to 1,812 annually.”
The Rev. Harlan Limpert says this may be due to congregations cleaning up their membership data.
