Table contains different values than official statistics, 1984-1991[edit]

The LDS church reports their membership in April General conference [ During the period from 1984 to 1991, membership totals were rounded off to the nearest 10,000. For example, in 1987 membership was reported as 6,440,000, not 6,394,314 as appears in the table.

According to the first edits on the page back in 2006, the numbers come out of the 2006 Church Almanac. Though books.google.com has that book and I'm not finding it searching the previews.Naraht (talk) 04:38, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
