everyone and longgone,
hope that the following will help !
From: *** yb70 p. 314 1969—A Year of Praise ***
This tremendous increase, of course, makes Jehovah’s
witnesses very happy, and when we look at the new peak in publishers for the 1969
service year we find that the final count came to 1,336,112.
the number above you have to add the numbers of
1970 – 1979 Total 1.793.898
YEARS 1980 – 1989 Total 1.863.106
YEARS 1990- 1999 Total
YEARS 2000 – 2009 Total
2010 – 2013 Total
YEARS 2014 – 2015 Total
The bove figures will give a
GRAND TOTAL OF POTENTIAL
Publishers 2016 8.132.358
difference is 4.698.719 (-)
this point you’ll have to make allowance for those who have died
(1% each year see yb74
page 254 par.4 )
During a period of 46 years Total
also make allowance for those disfellowshipped
considered disassociated -see quotes below)
Let’s befair and take 25000/yearx46
years Total 1.125.000 (b)
This will give a grand total of 2.408.107 (a + b)
Then deduct from **The difference 4.698.719 (-)
It will give a total of 2.290.612 missing
baptized br. & sist.
Adding the total (b) the result

the year 2016
Average Publishers 2016 8.132.358

11/1 p. 18 par. 10 Are You Remaining Clean in Every Respect? ***
Yet, thousands each year are reproved or disfellowshipped
because of sexual immorality—‘sinning against the body.’ (1 Corinthians
11/15 p. 9 par. 4 Self-Control—Why So Important? ***
This sobering truth has forcefully been brought home
to us by the exclusion of over 40,000 erring individuals from fellowship with
the Christian congregation during the past service year, largely because of
grossly wrong conduct.
12/1 p. 17 par. 10 Do You Seek Hidden Treasures? ***
Yet, with over 41,000 disfellowshipped last year, it
is clear that many brothers and sisters have neglected their spirituality.
9/15 p. 13 par. 13 Breathing This World’s “Air” Is Death-Dealing! ***
Unfortunately, during the 1986 service year, 37,426
had to be disfellowshipped from the Christian congregation, the greater number
of them for practicing sexual immorality.
7/15 p. 15 par. 4 Prayers Require Works ***
. Of the more than 3,000,000 publishers of the good
news last year, upwards of 37,000 were disfellowshipped for conduct unbecoming
a Christian. That amounts to a ratio of about one in 80
1/1 p. 13 par. 12 Days Like “the Days of Noah” ***
It is to be noted, also, that during the past year,
36,638 individuals had to be disfellowshipped from the Christian congregation,
the greater number of them for practicing immorality.
p. 31 1979 Yearbook of Jehovah’s Witnesses ***
The seriousness of this matter is emphasized in the
fact that 29,893 were disfellowshiped last year.
8/1 p. 466 par. 24 Divine Mercy Points the Way Back for Erring Ones ***
Thus, in the United States (where there are now
more than half a million Christian witnesses of Jehovah), during the ten-year
period from 1963 to 1973, 36,671 persons had to be disfellowshiped for various
kinds of serious wrongdoing.
6/15 p. 373 par. 25 The Great Potter Molds Human Vessels ***
The fact that there were some 3,000 disfellowshipings
in the United States
alone during the 1964 service year shows how necessary this message against
uncleanness is even for God’s people.

UNDOING OF MINISTERS BY BAD MORALS
19 The need of constant, prayerful
vigilance is emphasized by information from the Service Department at the Brooklyn headquarters of the Watch Tower Bible &
Tract Society. This has to do with those dedicated baptized members belonging
to the thousands of congregations in the United States of North America. For
each of the five years from March, 1952, to April, 1957, there was an average
of 500 members that were disfellowshiped for flagrant misdeeds that cannot be
tolerated inside of Jehovah’s congregation. However, during the year from
April, 1957, to April, 1958, the number rose sharply above that yearly average
of 500, to 1,334 delinquent members, or more than two and a half times as many.
We dare not dull the shock of this startling information by arguing that this
may, in part, be due to the American congregations’ having at least 18,537 new persons
associating themselves with the witnessing activities during those twelve
months. That number of new ones is less than one twelfth of the 226,797 that
proclaimed the Kingdom good news in America during April of 1958, about
65 percent of which proclaimers are dedicated and baptized. So what are 1,334
delinquents compared with more than 147,000 dedicated, baptized members? Less
than 1 percent.
20 Though 1,334 may be less than 1
percent, this sudden jump to that number definitely discloses that more than
twice as many as in previous years have failed to watch themselves and act
wisely during the wicked days of 1957-1958. With 3,718 or more congregations
functioning in the United States of North America, about one out of every three
congregations could be affected by 1,334 disfellowshipings.
