Surveys show U.S. religiosity, from least religious states to most
»51 items «
A recent Gallup poll revealed that Mississippi is the most religious U.S. state, and is one of eight states where at least half of the residents are classified as "very religious." Gallup's "very religious" designation is based on statements of religion as an important part of an individual's daily life, as well as worship services attendance. Around 40 percent of Americans nationwide are classified as very religious, while another 32 percent are nonreligious. The remaining 28 percent are moderately religious. As the Gallup data shows, eight of the 10 most religious states in 2011 are in the South, with one located in the Midwest (Oklahoma) and the final state in the West (Utah). Six of the least religious states are in New England and four are in the West. America as a whole remains a religious nation, Gallup states, with more than two-thirds of U.S. residents classified as very or moderately religious. * Data taken from the 2008 Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life/U.S. Religious Landscape Survey and the Gallup Religiosity by State 2011 survey
