The tables on this page represents Latter-day Saint membership, as reported by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), as of December 31, 2016.[1] Except where indicated, general population figures are based on the latest CIA estimates (primarily for July 2016).[2] Percentages of LDS members were calculated with this information. The link under the names of each country, territory, etc. corresponds to brief LDS history and statistical information for that particular area. In 2016, the LDS Church had a reported membership that exceeded 15.8 million.[1] The number of stakes, districts, congregations were taken from the Meetinghouse Locator.[3]

Membership defined[edit]

The LDS Church defines membership as:[4]

  1. Those who have been baptized and confirmed.
  2. Those under age nine who have been blessed but not baptized.
  3. Those who are not accountable because of intellectual disabilities, regardless of age.
  4. Unblessed children under age eight when:
    • Two member parents request it.
    • One member parent requests it and the nonmember parent gives permission.
