Average Congregation Size

MONDAY, MAY 18, 2020

Los Angeles – the City of Angels – has more than 5.2 million residents who are having to worship at home during the coronavirus pandemic, more than any other U.S. county. A Social Explorer review of the U.S. Census of Religion – a nongovernmental effort undertaken every decade – found that the average attendance at its 5,773 congregations (375) is lower than dozens of other counties, including Sin City (Las Vegas; 500 average congregants) and only slightly higher than the Big Apple (New York, not the Biblical one; 357).
