Statistik över medlemsantalet i Jesu Kristi Kyrka av Sista Dagars Heliga genom tiderna

År 2013 publicerade Deseret Morning News Church Almanac information angående Jesu Kristi Kyrka av Sista Dagars Heligas (Mormonkyrkans) medlemsantal genom tiderna. Den 31 december 2019 rapporterade Jesu Kristi Kyrka att de hade 16,565,035.[1] medlemmar. År 2017 ökade kyrkans medlemsantal med 1.37%, vilket var den lägsta procentuella ökningen på 80 år,[2] året därpå växte Jesu Kristi Kyrkas medlemsantal med 1.21%. Trots den relativt långsamma medlemsökningen inom Jesu Kristi Kyrka av Sista Dagars Heliga ökar den andel av jordens befolkning som är mormoner, då världens befolkningstillväxt låg på 1.07% år 2018.[3]

Med tanke på att Jesu Kristi Kyrka av Sista Dagars Heliga ökar med omkring 250,000 nya medlemmar per år beräknar man att det ökar med 20,833 nya medlemmar per månad. Det finns alltså just nu (april 2020) 16,648,369 mormoner i världen och 10 000 mormoner i Sverige.[4][5][6][7][8]
