Recent Statistics for the Episcopal Diocese of Southwestern Virginia

Posted by Kendall Harmon

(Note that I decided to research these numbers based on the preceding post about the diocese--KSH).

According to the U.S.Census Bureau's figures, Roanoke, the see city of the diocese, has grown in population from 94,911 in 2000 to 97,032 in 2010. This represents a population growth of approximately 2.2% in this time frame.

According to Episcopal Church statistics, the Diocese of Southwestern Virginia went from Average Sunday Attendance (or ASA) of 5,311 in 2000 to 4,266 in 2010. This represents a decline of 19.7% during this decade.

Please note that if you go to the link toward the end of this sentence and enter "Southwestern Virginia" as the name of the diocese and then "View Diocese Chart" underneath on the left you can see in pictorial form some of the data from 2000-2010.
