I'm trying to find out how many JW there were globally in 1924, 1925, 1926, 1927 and 1928. The Watchtower of 1926 says that there were 25,000 in attendance at the Magdeburg convention for the public address, but the same Watchtower say that one the last day of the convention there were 15,000 present, so I assume at least 10,000 were interested persons - non JW. The Watchtower 1955 says: "For this year of 1927 the number in attendance at the spring Memorial internationally was 88,544, yet of these only some 18,602 were active as house-to-house Kingdom announcers". These statistics would seem to imply that the majority of JW in 1926 were at the Magdeburg convention. I find that really hard to believe. Were almost all JW German? I must be missing something. I know this may sound really uninteresting, but I need the statistics for some research I'm doing at the moment regarding WT interpretation of the 1,335 days. I would like to know how many *baptized *JW there were *globally *in 1924, 1925, 1926, 1927, 1928, not how many people were at the memorial, or how many were interested but not baptized. Thanks in advance.

P.S. If anyone has any statistics I would be grateful if you could provide references. Thanks again.
