ObservationsEdit

How many orgs and missions ARE there? According to Katherine Fraser at Gold Base: "We have, you know, 6,000 groups, churches, missions internationally." In 2008, Tommy Davis told CNN that they had 7,500 orgs and missions. Let's go to their official source and see what Scientology.org says.

This is just the official list from the Scientology site itself as of April 8th, 2009. If you know any other orgs or missions, or if you see any that have closed or moved, please let me know. I know I must have missed a few with the sucky system they've got set up, so if you see one I've missed, tell me! Feel free to check my research and my math.

Interesting things I noticedEdit

  • There are a lot of countries I've never heard of before.
  • There are more Scientology centers listed in France than all of Canada.
  • Italy has more Scientology centers listed than any other European country.
  • There are a disproportionally large number of Scientology centers in Taiwan and Italy.
  • There are Scientology centers in only four African nations.
  • Pakistan is the only Islamic nation with a Scientology center.
  • There are 1.6 billion people in China and not one Scientology center.
  • Gold Base in Hemet is not listed as a Scientology location in the Scientology.org provided search. Neither is ASHO ANZO Sydney. I had to add them separately.
  • There are more Scientology sites listed for California than any other state in the US.
  • There are 17 US states without any official Scientology orgs/missions.
  • 27 countries have at least one Org no change from 2007.
  • 23 countries have missions only, down 7 from 2007.
  • Most countries show little change in the number of service units. As noted in our previous surveys however, a few countries are different.
  • Russia has two Orgs supporting a lot of Missions, but growth has reversed (30 down from 73) perhaps due to competition from Rons Org.
  • Italy also has a lot of Missions, the number seems to have stabilised.
  • Several other countries experienced a big growth in Missions such as Hungary, Slovakia, Taiwan and Ukraine but these like Russia appear to be in decline.
  • In the USA the number of Missions has now fallen after a decade of steady increase.
  • Orgs: 128 (no change) Missions: 322 (down 61 from 2007)

Historical geographic breakdown of orgs/missions: [1]

Results and Number CrunchingEdit

There are 472 listed Orgs and Missions in the whole world according to the official Scientology site

6,000 - 472 = 5,528 apparently missing orgs/missions that are not officially listed by Scientology.org

If there are 8-10 million Scientologists in the world and 472 missions/orgs officially listed by Scientology.org, there would have to be an average of 16,949 to 21,186 members for every single mission and org in the entire world.

Note: this number includes Gold Base and ASHO ANZO buildings in California and in Sydney that were not listed by the Scientology.org website.
