New study finds jump in number of Americans with no religious affiliation
Catholic World News - March 15, 2013
A new study by Berkeley sociologists has found that the number of Americans who report no religious affiliations is at an all-time high.
The Berkeley researchers reported that 32% of respondents said they were not affiliated with any religious body. Just 20% gave the same answer in a 1990 survey.
The survey found that college graduates were most likely to have no religious ties. The researchers also found a sharp drop in the number of people identifying themselves as Catholics: from 35% to 24%.
