It seems the church is struggling to get it up. I think the church might need some medicine.

drumdude, I don't see the graph at your link. Do you have a link to where you got the graph?

Andy Larsen is a data columnist for The Salt Lake Tribune. He recently used Cooperative Election Study data from 2010-2021 to graph trends in US religious affiliation:

The published article:

Headline: Surveys shed light on the LDS Church membership stagnation.

What did they find? Well, to be honest, a significant slump in the number of respondents in the past 10 years who say they are Latter-day Saints. Just like with the church membership rolls, 2021 was a particularly troubling year.

Again, you see declines in other Christian religions over that same period, especially among Protestants. In this poll, however, the number of respondents who say they’re Latter-day Saints falls more quickly than any other religion.

On the Salt Lake Tribune graph why did they cut the end off?

Thanks. That survey has a relatively small sampling error, but I always wonder exactly what it is for tiny groups as shown in the second graph.

ETA: If I understand the survey (always questionable) it looks like the demographic data (including religion) is in the general class, sample size ~550,000. So, something like +/- .13% at the 95% confidence level (I think....). So, yeah, not looking so hot.

That downward trajectory beginning in 2012 seems tightly correlated with the rise of Interpreter.
