This means that for every 6 Publishers, there is a disfellowshipped person. This statistic doesn't take into account all of the kids that become/removed as publishers and receive a similar treatment from their family.

**Conclusion: **Jehovah's witnesses do break up families. This is not a question, its a measurable fact.

Assumptions:

- Every year, 1% of all baptized are disfellowshipped.
- 1 of every 3 disfellowshipped persons is re-instated.
- 1.3 normal death rate applied to baptized and disfellowshipped ones.

I also used baptism statistics found on JWFacts.
