It's been a fun series, crunching though United States towns and cities and matching them with Unitarian Universalist congregations. Feel free to comment away; I certainly will, since there are also issues about Unitarian Universalist culture implied there. Here are the blog posts, in reverse chronological order.
- A METROPOLIS WITHOUT UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISTS; NO, DOZENS, REALLY
- PLACES CHURCHES RENT TO MEET
- A WORD ABOUT RURAL CHURCHES
- THE REAL REASON WHY I REVIEW CHURCH FIGURES
- THE LARGEST MICROPOLIS WITHOUT A UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST CONGREGATION
- THE UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST MICROPOLITAN AREA BREAKDOWN
- MAPPING THE UUA
This was a trial run and a learning exercise for when the 2010 block-level Census data comes out in a few months, when we can pick up the fun in earnest. That said, is there any kind of data you'd like pulled out with respect to Unitarian Universalist congregations?
I'll also have the basic spreadsheet I used to draw some of these conclusions available for download -- once I add some meaningful headers. Go and do likewise.
