Utah isn't the only state with a high number of religious residents.
A new map titled “Faithland” shows the highest and lowest concentrations of religious supporters in the United States, the Association of Religion Data Archives posted on Twitter last week.
The map shows the highest rates of religious adherents as a percentage of all residents are found in Utah, southeast Idaho and North and South Dakota, as well as parts of northeast New Mexico, north Texas and western Oklahoma.8 comments on this story
The lowest rates are seen in the Pacific Northwest and Maine.
Data are taken from the Association of Religion Data Archives (ARDA) and the U.S. Religion Census compiled from 2009 to 2011. Participants of 236 religious groups in each county of the U.S. were surveyed. The map was created by environmental scientist Alex Egoshin.
