2013 Congregational Economic Impact Study
This study draws upon three distinct periods to better understand the impact of the Great Recession. Respondents were asked to refer to the 2011 fiscal year, to compare years prior to 2011, and to provide information about conditions up to the first half of 2012. This study does not include complete fiscal year data for 2012. Moreover, since the timing of the Great Recession’s impact varied across North America, respondents answered recession-related questions based upon their own experience of when economic conditions were the worst for them.
