The Twelve Largest Amish Settlements (2011)
*Approximate number, as of July 2011
Notes: The number of people in a church district varies by settlement. Therefore, one settlement may have more districts than another, while at the same time containing fewer people. For example, although the Holmes County settlement has more church districts, the Lancaster area has a larger population, because there are approximately 165 people per district in Lancaster versus 130 per district in Holmes County.
