    Stats reported here earlier are correct. The percentage of increase in peak publishers from 2014 to 2015 is -5.55

    There grand totals says 1.5% increase. That must be based on average pubs.

    It is. Of course they won't print a side by side of peak publishers. Too revealing.

    I can't get it to open from my phone, are there any notable decreases?

    Weird...in the section of legal victories they forgot to mention Geoffrey Jackson's masterful Royal commission testimony. Shame, would have loved to read about it.

    To clear up the numbers:

    2014 Peak - 8,201,545

    2015 Peak - 8,220,105

    2014 - 2015 Peak increase = 18,560 = 0.23%

    Peak publishers 2014 - 8,201,545

    Peak publishers 2015 - 8,220,105

    270k baptized, and peak increase by 18,560 - average by 119,321

    BTW - Aug 15, 2011 QFR

    Peak publishers and average publishers. “Publishers” includes baptized Witnesses of Jehovah as well as unbaptized ones who qualify to be Kingdom preachers. “Peak publishers” is the highest number reporting for any one month of the service year and may include late reports that were not added to the preceding month’s report. In this way some publishers may be counted twice. However, the peak figure does not include the number of publishers who actually shared in the ministry but forgot to report. This emphasizes the importance of each publisher reporting promptly each month. “Average publishers” is the typical number of different ones reporting time in the ministry each month.
