Religiosity was defined as:
Very religious: People that attend religious services every week and religion is an important part of their daily lives. This was 41% of Americans.
Moderately religious: People that do not attend religious services regularly, but religion is an important part of their daily lives. This was 29% of Americans.
Non-religious: People that attend religious services seldom or never and religion is not an important part of their lives. This was 29% of Americans.
The most religious states are in the South, the Midwest, and the State of Utah. The least religious states are in New England and in the West.
