last time I looked into it was 2009, I found independent surveys that put the lds population at about 1.4% from 1990-2009.

Less than 2% of the US population: 1.897%

Active members: 2,276,268

That comes Cumohah.com, a Mormon-friendly, independent research project.

Even if you go by the church's claimed 6 million or so US members, that's only 2% of the 300+ million US population.
