The third national survey in the Faith Communities Today series, FACT2008, took place throughout the year of 2008. FACT2008 “A First Look” is available on this website along with and the full report, American Congregations 2008.
The FACT2008 used key informants in each surveyed congregation, typically the senior or sole clergy leader, to complete the survey. The survey sample was a composite of three layers of random national samples designed to represent the universe of American congregations. The final dataset contains questionnaires from 2,527 congregations. The sampling error for such types of samples is difficult to calculate with precision. We estimate it to be +/- 4 percent.
