Note: Flag stats are up from 2003, but significantly down from the peak year of 1989. The 2004 Source Stats Analysis page has more details. You can also read the September 2004 Source Stats Analysis and the preliminary analysis of Source statistics. Both 2004 analyses go back as far as 1976.

In addition, I have posted a 2004 Freewinds Stats Analysis and a 2004 Advance Stats Analysis.

As part of my ongoing project of compiling and analyzing Scientology's statistics, I am collecting statistics from Source magazine, the magazine of the Church of Scientology's Flag Service Organization in Clearwater, Florida.

I currently have several issues. So far, completions lists have been posted from dozens of issues, thanks to the amazing Cerridwen, who's doing a great deal of the work on this project:
