Numbering Note:Beginning with the census of 1916, each church organization was assigned a key number based on the alphabetical position of its name or of the name of the denomination. For example, under Adventist bodies, the Advent Christian Church received the number 0-0-0, and the Seventh Day Adventist denomination, the number 0-0-1; and other sects were keyed through the number 1-9-9 (Volunteers of America). Since this numerical classification began in 1916, later denominations and those omitted in 1916 were listed in a continuing numerical series in 1926 (Nos. 2-0-0 through 2-4-4).
