The change to vernacular certainly helped to retain still 1140 million Catholics, from which 20+% active.

The vernacular masses even in the US bring together more people per priest that the Latin masses. In a diocesan Church in the suburbs there are 4-7 Sunday masses (including the anticipated Mass at Saturday night), in the Latin Mass Churches the average is less than 3 . The pastor of my territorial Parish says 7 masses in every Sunday, and except for the Sunday early morning and Sunday late evening Masses all ar full, and the mentioned two brings together more that 200 people each.

The Eastern Catholics at least in Central Europe turned to vernacular, whit the exception of the Canon in the 1930's.
