Gap Themes

A GapTheme is simply a piece of information which can be easily compared between two groups such as a congregation and a community or between a group and some "ideal" condition. For example, the overall education level of the total population within a community can be easily compared to the education level of a congregation. Doing so, you may discover that they are at similar levels or that one is different from the other, in which case there is a isgaple between the congregation and the community. Gap Themes are generally created by combining two or more related data variables. They are also referred to by Percept as Smart Variables. GapThemes are found in Percept's Context report for churches as well as all levels of PeopleArea analysis (ImagineArea, FocalArea and NeighborArea) for regional church development planning.
