Dear Bahá’í Friend,

Your email of 8 January 1998, requesting updated information about the percentage of National Spiritual Assembly members who are women, has been received at the Bahá’í World Centre.

Please find enclosed a table showing historical information, similar to the one previously sent to you, but updated to 1997. Also enclosed is our letter to you of 12 June 1996 [not included here].
    With loving Bahá’í greetings,
    For the Department of Statistics

    [Note: the table below lists 1992 twice; the second one is presumably a typo for '1993.']

Dear Bahá’í Friend,

Your email message of 20 November 2006 requesting updated information about the percentage of National Spiritual Assembly members who are women has been received at the Bahá’í World Centre and referred to our Department for response.

We are pleased to enclose a document with a table providing historical data from 1997 and a graph depicting similar information for each continent of the world from 1990. Also enclosed is our letter to you of 3 February 1998, with enclosure, as requested by you. We hope you find the information useful.
    With loving Bahá’í greetings,
