"Indeed, because Congregationalists were the established church in New England and drew support from all taxpayers, they sometimes placed their membership close to the total population figure. The Congregationalist minister Ezra Stiles, for example, set the number of Congregationalists in New England in 1760 at 445,000, or just about 4,000 persons short of the total population of the time (Sweet, 1939, p. 3). Such optimistic counting... often badly misled visitors about the religious situation. "
