    Have fun with the list:

    http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=pPB2R7JkkbvaZfl74h0Qgdg

    Quick summary:

    Total Number of Orgs and Missions world wide listed by Scientology in 2006 :

    90 Orgs
    334 Missions
    in 52 countries


    Total Number of Orgs and Missions world wide listed by Scientology in 2004 :

    129 Orgs
    343 Missions
    in 57 countries

    Note there are 3 tabs:
    - Quick Summary
    - Summary
    - Full Lists with Addresses

    Whole document is around 70 pages. If anyone wants an editable version, e-mail me and I can e-mail you the original Excel Spreadsheet, file size around 600K.

    I wanted to update this document for 2007, but CoS has not gotten around to updating their Scientology Today web page.

    Interesting.

    It would be more meaningful for me (as a trend) if you would put together the numbers over the last 30 years (or as much as you can).

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately, I don't have access to earlier data. This info is strictly from Scientology web sites. I started tracking this in 2004, and CoS only seems to sporadically update their info.

    If someone can find older data, I can add it in to the spreadsheet. Right now though, I'm just waiting for CoS next updated list.

    Excellent.

    So let's see, if there are 8 million Scientologists in the world, and a total of 424 orgs and missions on the planet as of 2006.

    Then that means there should be an average of 18,868 Scientologists for every org and mission on the planet.

    Show of hands - who here has ever seen a mission with 18,867 students and pcs???

    Anyone?

    Well for every mission that doesn't have that many students and pcs, then those numbers have to be made up elsewhere...

    Well, the numbers will go through the roof soon when DM decides that anyone who has googled "Scientology" is now classified as a member.

    Hartley Patterson might have more info.

    scroll about half way down. He might have more
    info somewhere else. I know he was keeping track
    of their numbers for a while.

    Hate to be a party pooper- but I think those figures are incorrect.

    The UK has Edinburgh, Sunderland, Manchester, Birmingham, Brighton, London Day, London Foundation (possibly considered one Org on the list), London CC, Saint Hill Day & Foundation. Active missions in York, Plymouth, Tonbridge Wells, Yeovil, Eastbourne. Don't think Hove mission is active anymore- not certain though.

    If there is 90 Orgs- then how can 10% of them be in the UK when there are active Orgs in lots of countries; USA, Canada, Germany, Italy, France, South Africe, Australia, Spain, Russia, Mexico, Japan etc. Orgs that many of us could go and look at in the street?

    For some reason- the Mission list is huge. I do wonder how accurate their data is on this?

    The problem here is that the CoS has several websites with lists of branches, and they are not all updated or in comm with each other.
    The one you used for Orgs is not the best organized. It lists the Indian Missions under UK for example, as that's where they are on the board.

    Try this one for Orgs only:
    http://www.churchofscientology.com/
    and the one you know is good for Missions:
    http://www.smi.org/address/index.htm

    My Org counting webpage is out of date. The web counter says no one looks at it anyway. OK, OK, I'll update Real Soon Now.
