Rate : Calvinistic Methodist 'Attendances' as Percentage of Total

Rates are used to define comparative statistics that can be mapped and graphed. For example, our occupational information includes counts of the number of workers in employment and out of employment, as well as the total number of workers. We then define a measure called the 'Unemployment Rate', which uses the number out of work rather than the number in work, and expresses it as a percentage of the total, rather than a rate per thousand. The descriptive text in the system is defined mainly for rates.

The Calvinistic Methodists were the followers of George Whitfield (1714-69), who broke away from the Wesley brothers who originally founded Methodism. Their strength was overwhelmingly in Wales, where they built on an earlier religious revival led by Howel Harris in the 1730s.
