Most members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) live outside of the United States. About 40% of Mormons live in the US, and 60% live outside of the US scattered in nearly every nation. The Church is growing most quickly in Africa and Central and South America; membership remains steady in Asia and Europe; and is sparse but exists in the Middle East. The highest concentration of Mormons is in the western United States, and about 10% of all Mormons live in Utah.

Mormons live in every state. The highest percentage of Mormons is in Utah, and the highest amount of Mormons in in California.

I live in salt lake and would say it has the largest concentration of mormans as percentage of total population. But most mormans in the US live out of slc. Out of utah in fact. ---------------- No, definately not. While Salt Lake City is the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church), most American Mormons live outside of Utah. (There are 6,060,000 baptized Mormons in the United States, and 1,884,000 of those live in Utah.) So, less than 1/3 of American Mormons live in Utah. Most Mormons in Utah live outside of Salt Lake City. The city itself is actually quite liberal and diverse, and the homes are small and expensive compared to the rest of the state. The suburbs surrounding Salt Lake City are where the majority of Mormons in Utah live. Some of the suburbs are more than 90% Mormon. About 80,000 of the 6,060,000 American Mormons live in Salt Lake City, which is just over 1.3%.

Most members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) live outside the United States. They do not pledge allegiance to the US because they are not US citizens. Mormons believe in honoring their country, wherever they live. Within Mormonism, honoring or 'pledging allegiance' to your country is a part of pledging allegiance to your religion, since Mormons are expected to "be subject to kings, presidents, rulers and magistrates in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law."

The Mormons had faced severe persecution and oppression from both local residents and city and state governments. An appeal for protection to the United States government was not answered, so the Mormons decided to seek religious freedom outside of the United States.

Everywhere! In 1900, most Mormons lived in Utah, southern Idaho, and northern Arizona, with a few congregations in Canada, Mexico, and other US States as well as most European countries and many of the Pacific Islands. In 1999, there were millions of Mormons living all over the world, with most Mormons living outside of the United States. Church growth especially expanded in Africa, Asia, and South America during the 1900's.

It depends on how you would define "most popular". The US has the most Mormons. Tonga has the highest percentage of Mormons. The church is growing fastest in Mexico and Brazil.

Most of those who live in the US or want to, love it. Most of those who live outside the US tend to blame the US for the world's problems and don't understand why its government seems to interfere in global affairs.

The Mormon pioneers and the Utes got along quite well. Of course there were a few incidents but for the most part the Utes recognized that the Mormons were in a similar situation with most Native American groups - kicked out of their homes by the US government and in need of a safe place to live. Because of this they were usually quite welcoming and helpful to the Mormons.

From a US perspective: Most live in California and New York. After that, abroad (outside of the US). There is a growning number living in more midwestern locations and Texas has also shown to be popular.

Yes, Mormons do consider themselves to be Christians. In the US, Utah is the state with the largest number of Mormons. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has approximately 15 million members throughout the world.

Are you serious or are you taking the Michael out of us who live outside the States? In the 19th century most major event took place outside the US, in those days you were no more than upstart former colony.

While it is true that some Mormons are more concerned about image, you will find this with any religion. The teachings of the LDS (Mormon) church teach that you should not be concerned about image but be Christ like and live as Christ would want us to live. There are many Mormons who follow this and try to live Christ like lives and would not care about how the world sees them.

No. He never lived outside the US.

Nobody. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) was founded in the US - so the first Mormons were already in the US! :) If you are speaking of the first Mormons to move from another country to the US, rather than the first Mormons ever in the US, the answer is still nobody. The first Mormons to move from another country to the US came from Canada, and were not 'brought' by any specific person, only encouraged to move so that they could be nearer to the main body of the church.

All states in the US are inhabited by mormons, Utah having the largest population.

Depends on where you live, typically in the US the weather is not conducive for a ferret to live outdoors.
