Most and Least Religious States in America


America remains a generally religious nation, with more than two-thirds of the nation's residents classified as very or moderately religious. Gallup classifies 40 percent of Americans nationwide as very religious ; another 32% of Americans are nonreligious; the remaining 28 percent of Americans are moderately religious. These overall national averages, however, conceal dramatic regional differences in religiosity across the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Residents of Southern states are generally the most religious. On the other hand, residents of New England and a number of far Western states tend to be the least religious.  [link]
