"To the extent that these numbers were based on anything but pure gueswork..., they were the result of a great fallacy. People simply added all immigrants from all 'Catholic' countries to the previous Catholic total and then factored in a high rate of natural increase. Ford claimed that Irish immigration and fertility alone should have produced 24 million Catholics by 1870, to say nothing of the millions more that should have been produced by immigrants from elsewhere. A more cautious estimate was offered by Abbe Villeneuve, who added together the Irish, German, French, Belgian, and Italian immigrants and claimed there ought to have been at least 20 million American Catholics by 1890 (Shaughnessy, 1925). Because these overcounts were taken for fact, the results of the religion census of 1890 seemed to ratify the proposition... that, when presented with the opportunity to choose, millions of immigrants had deserted the faith.

"If millions more 'Catholics' had entered the nation, where were they? Defection seemed the only possible conclusion. Bishop England estimated that more than 3 million Catholic immigrants had defected by 1836, and throughout the rest of the century the American Catholic hierarchy grew increasingly upset about the church's terrible losses. In a memorial presented to the Pope in 1910, the loss of members was estimated to be 10 million. Others placed it at 20 million. 'What, then, has become of the other 20 million?' Villeneuve asked. 'They have turned Protestant or have become indifferent,' he answered (in Shaughnessy, 1925, p. 233). But it wasn't true. In 1925 Gerald Shaughnessy published a quantitative study, notable for its sophistication and careful scholarship [showing that the] 'missing' millions had never existed, because the millions of immigrants from 'Catholic' nations weren't Catholics.
