Most and Least Religious States
Mississippi is the most religious state and Vermont is the least religious, according to a recent study conducted by Gallup.
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.
These state-by-state results are based on more than 174,000 interviews conducted as part of Gallup Daily tracking in 2013, including more than 500 interviews conducted in each state and 442 in the District of Columbia.
