The problem of this thesis may be stated in four questions: (1) To what extent are "Fast Offerings" paid by the membership of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? (2) What changes, if any, have occurred in the amounts of these fast offerings paid over the years 1916 to 1936, inclusive? (3) What differences and similarities appear to exist in the amounts of fast offerings paid in the several stakes of the Church? (4) How do the rates of change in the amounts of fast offerings paid during these years compare with the rates of change in the Church population?
