Landmark Survey on Religion in the U.S.

The Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life released yesterday their first report of the U.S. Religious Landscape Survey. You may have seen a brief report on it on the CBS Evening News.

84% of adults indicated they are affiliated with a particular faith, though 44% of American adults indicate they have switched religious affiliation from what they grew up in. 25% of 18-29 year olds say they are not currently affiliated with a particular religion.
