Are there any figures re: the number of people in the US who have entered the Roman Catholic Church since the introduction of the RCIA? Thanks.

I don’t have statistics for each year, but in 1998, there were 42,629 adult baptisms, and 81,775 baptized Christians who entered full communion with the church in the United States. Those numbers are typical, so you can do a rough average from when the RCIA was mandated in the U.S. ten years previously—1988.
