Advance UK Magazine Statistics
Note: Preliminary analysis suggests that about 60% of people who try
Scientology do only a single course or service, that 80% of new members
become inactive within 2 years, and that 65% of those who reach
the level of Clear become inactive within a year after doing so. The
older a list, the more likely that a person listed on it is no longer
involved in Scientology.
As part of my ongoing project of compiling and analyzing Scientology's statistics, I am collecting statistics from Advance UK magazine. There are at least three Advance magazines: Advance (US), the magazine of the Church of Scientology's ASHO (American Saint Hill Organization) in Los Angeles, Advance (UK), the magazine of the Church of Scientology's Advanced Organization Saint Hill United Kingdom, and Advance (ANZO), the magazine of the Church of Scientology's Advanced Organization for Australia, New Zealand and Oceania.
I currently have several issues. So far, completions lists have been posted from these issues:
Advance UK (AOSH)
I am interested in receiving copies of, or information from, all remaining issues.
I will update these pages as I receive more information and have time to continue my analysis. The most complete existing analysis so far is from Source. I hope to do considerable work on Freewinds by the end of 2002.
Many, many people have contributed to the statistics project by sending in tallies, completions lists, or old magazines. The contribution page tells more about how you can help. I thank all those who have contributed so far!
