Research and Statistics

The Research and Statistics unit collects, analyses, and publishes data relating to a wide range of aspects of the Church of England.
  • Church attendance
  • Parish finances
  • Ministry
  • Cathedral attendance
  • College chapel attendance
We use data from the national census and other government statistics to provide parish-level information for the Church of England's 12,600 parishes.
 
We provide an interactive Church of England parish map, with summary deprivation and census statistics mapped onto parish boundaries. The map also shows parish, benefice, deanery, archdeaconry, diocese, and lower super output area (LSOA) boundaries, and school locations.

Parish deprivation data can be explored in more detail in the Church Urban Fund's poverty lookup tool.
