That’s all it would take for Mormon missionaries to knock on every door in the US.
Don’t ask me why, but the question popped into my head one day: How long would it take for Mormon missionaries to knock on every door in the US? I finally sat down and did some “back of the napkin” estimates and came up with the following numbers:
Total Households in 2010 = 114,235,996
Total Households minus Mormon households = 112,735,996 (subtracted 1.5 million households)
Missionaries = 20,000
Households Knocked per Day = 10
Days to Knock Every Household = 1,127
Years to Knock Every Household (including p-days) = 3.602
I have no idea why or how this information would be useful, but I thought it was interesting. Here’s the spreadsheetI used to make the calculations in case anyone wants to fiddle with the numbers.
