Utah Valley University is a public university and cannot legally require it's students to reveal their religious preferences, therefore it is impossible to know exactly how many members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints attend there.

It is safe to assume that about 50% of the student body are actively practicing members of the LDS church, and at least 10% are baptized members that do not currently practice the faith. The church operates an Institute of Religion near campus, which offers free religion classes and recreational programs to students, regardless of religous affiliation. They also have several student congregations to serve the needs of LDS UVU students.

As of 2009 there were about 1,040,000 members of the LDS church in Brazil, and a total population of about 190,000,000 -- so that's 0.54%

I'm not sure, it probably depends on the site since LDS-specific sites are usually full of LDS members looking to date other LDS members. LDSSingles.com, LDSPlanet.com, LDSMingle.com, and LDSSingleSite.com are a few LDS dating sites you can try.

It is estimated that about 50-60% of baptized members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) are active in their congregations.

Yes it is allowed. Each member makes their own choice of who they do and do not date. The reason why many LDS singles choose to date only other members of the LDS church is because they wish to date someone who lives by the same righteous standards they do. They date members who, if they fall in love, they can be married to in an LDS temple for time and all eternity. Only LDS members of the church who live righteous LDS standards can enter the temple. It's really very romantic. These members choose to find a love that can last forever, not just 'till death do they part'.

According to the official 2008 year end records of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, there are 5,974,041 LDS Church members in the United States. The US Census Bureau Population Division puts the population of the United States at 304,059,724. This means that approximately 2% of the population of the United States is a baptized member of the LDS Church. (the exact number is 1.9648%)

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints reported 416,192 baptized members in Arizona as of January 1, 2015. Arizona's total population is about 6.8 million. This means that about 6% of Arizonians are LDS. (416000/6800000=0.0612=6.12%)

Not according to the Church's official website. Members of the Church in New Carlisle, Quebec attend church in Bathurst, New Brunswick or Remouski, Quebec.

Yes, the LDS are people. LDS stands for "Latter-day Saint" and is a nickname for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is also used to refer to the Church.

LDS (members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) are Christians. The Church is considered a Restorationist Christian denomination.

LDS stands for "Latter-day Saint". Someone who says that they are "LDS" is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church). Members of the Church prefer to use the abbreviation LDS rather than the nickname "Mormon".

Unless parents opt out, all boys who are members of the LDS church between the ages of eight and eighteen are Boy Scouts. It is part of the church's youth program.

No. None of the members of Chelsea Grin are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church).

LDS members do not choose to be excommunicated. Excommunication is an action the Church takes to remove members who commit serious sins. Excommunication is actually a pretty rare occasion, and excommunicated members are not punished forever. Church members who have been excommunicated are still welcome to participate in Sunday worship services and may be re-baptized into the Church once Church leadership feels they have sufficiently repented.

The FLDS (Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) split from the LDS (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) when the LDS church banned the practice of polygamy over 100 years ago. There are many huge difference between the two religions today.The FLDS has several thousand members, mostly all in the western United States and Canada. The LDS has over 14 million members all over the world. The FLDS generally live in isolated communities made up almost entirely of other members. The LDS live and participate in regular society. The FLDS tend to be quite secretive and insular, the LDS are not. The FLDS has it's own set of church leaders and does not recognize the LDS leaders as legitimate. The LDS do not recognize the FLDS leaders as legitimate. The FLDS have a very distinctive style of dress, while the LDS look and dress like most everyone else in mainstream society. The most important difference is that the FLDS believe that various changes made in practices among the LDS were not sanctioned by God and therefore they try to live the fundamental or original beliefs of Mormonism, including that of polygamous marriages. The FLDS have also developed many doctrinal beliefs and practices which were never taught among the LDS.

I don't know why you asked that question. "LDS" means "Latter Day Saints" and refers to anyone who is a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, or LDS church. That is pretty self explanatory. So the LDS were ALWAYS allowed in the LDS church because the LDS church is made up of only LDS people. Duh.
