    So using some amazing features of Excel and the starting data HERE, I managed to get the average, the maximum, and the minimum percentage of the inhabited landmass of the Earth where Jehovah's Witnesses have been either active (reported) or "not banned".

    The average is 66.10%!! That means that for 90 years, ever since there is data, 1/3 of the world's area has NOT been preached in or been fully able to preach in!

    The MINIMUM occurred in 1943, when only 26.77% of the world's inhabited area made a full yearly report and/or wasn't banned.

    The MAXIMUM occurred in 1991 because the yearbook said that the USSR was included. The maximum was 82.47%. So even in their best year ever, that left 17.53% of the world where the JW's were banned.

    For all intents and purposes, they have NOT "preached to all nations".

    So true. Totally agree with the one third figure. It can easily be seen by anyone who reads the latest Watchtower annual report. That means by Watchtowers own figures, God is about to destroy 2,500,000,000 who have never even heard the JW message.

    Well... doing the "area" analysis is easy since area of a country doesn't really change much. I want to do "% of the world population", which would be much more interesting. Possibly similar results, though.

    Nice chart Ilovettatt. Given that these areas where the "kingdom message" hasn't been preached in tend to be densely populated, I wonder how many millions, if not billions of people are missing out on these "good news".

    82.47%? That's amazing.

    Thanks for the numbers. That may shed some real new light on some.

    I have made this exact point to my family, when they talk about Jdubs preaching to all nations. I tell them that perhaps only one third of all people on earth actually hear their message.

    Their excuse if usually that even those countries have "undercover" witnesses that also preach the message quietly. What crock of sh*t. Even in developed countries you can go years without having contact with a jdub. I imagine in places like Pakistan, 99% of people never even spoke to a Jdub..ever.
