This work had two objects. The first was to determine the numerical importance of various factors affecting attendance in the Church of England. The second was to analyse the results in a way which would be helpful in all types of pastoral planning. The main factors investigated are age, social class, distance travelled to church, stewardship, the number of full-time workers in, and the population of, a parish. Other factors, which were not, or could not, be analysed, were also reviewed. Because the literature on the subject is very limited - perhaps half a dozen basic items - the author had to rely largely on his sample of 299 one-church parishes in the Greater London Area. The results were not as precise as the author had hopedi the reason for this would appear to be the inevitable omission of semi- or non-guantifiable parameters. In order to help the various committees and others involved in pastoral planning and reorganisation, two sections on estimating the optimum size of a proposed church, and its cost, have been included.
