A reddit contributor has put together detailed estimates of activity by country and region. It's the best we have, and certainly an improvement over any wild conjecture you or I could come up with.https://onedrive.live.com/view.aspx?resid=7206285C99C2C561!8657&ithint=file%2cxlsx&authkey=!ADh3kgMTx9tTKrA
Briefly, 41% of all 16.3M mormons are in the US (6.7M US, 9.6M ROW) but due to higher rates, especially in Utah, 60% of the 4.5M *active* mormons are US-based (2.7M US, 1.8M ROW). There are fewer than 88,000 actives in all of Europe, including spouses & children; there could be as few as 20-25K active households on the entire continent, and not all of them will be tithers.
Of course money flows into SLC from other countries, that's how the system is set up. But the US generates vastly more than anywhere else. It's a huge stretch to say US facilities are "subsidized" by other countries.
