How many Jehovah's Witnesses are in South Africa?

According to the worldwide report for 2006, there were a peak of 78,877 active JW's in South Africa. That is a ratio of one out of every 560 persons in South Africa is an active JW. Note: we only count those who are baptised as a JW and actively engaged in the witnessing work as being of that number. Others who are passively associated with JW's, those who may have become inactive in the faith, unbaptised persons who are studying with JW's, or children who are not old enough to have personally accepted the faith, are not counted.
