U.S. Religious Landscape Survey

The survey was released on Monday. Here is a link to the story where more detailed info is available.

Here are some highlights (or low lights):
  • People increasingly change denominations or abandon their affiliation all together.
  • 51.3 percent call themselves Protestants, but one third of Protestants either could not or would not describe their denomination.
  • 25 percent of adults under 30 have no affiliation.
  • Those who are "secular unaffiliated" are greater a percentage of Americans than Methodists (6.3 versus 6.2 percent).
  • Oregon has the greatest percentage of population with no affiliation (27 percent).
