    Thanks for making this available Dave,

    I made a pivot table from the data and assigned approximate locations. Here is the result:

    A couple caveats and words of explanation. Mexico is grouped with Hispanic &So America. The population of the 30 other lands is inferred to be 2 billion, since the WT chart leaves it blank and the world population is 7.3 billion.

    Worldwide Memorial partakers:

    Last year the USA had 11k baptisms this year down to 8k roughly.

    I think they lost 140k roughly from 2014-2015 based on baptisms and average publisher numbers. When was the last time they lost so many? These numbers also maybe the reason they have shut down their construction projects.

    Wow, the "growth rate" of publishers worldwide is off by a factor of 10 when compared to the human population growth rate! Publishers increased by a measly 0.01% (that's right - one tenth of one percent) vs. a population increase of 1.13%. And in the United State the margins are even bigger - by a factor of 100! Publishers up 0.007% vs US population growth rate of 0.7%. Crazy!

    How long before we start seeing negative growth in the US?

    *Correction: Both the world and US growth rates are off by a factor of 100. This just gets better and better! :)

    As I said on another thread. It is nice to see Britain having a zero % growth....
