Click through the slideshow to see most and least devotional cities in the United States:
A application of mind measuring devotional bodies in the United States called the, “2010 U.S. devotional Census:
devotional Congregations & Membership application of mind (RCMS)” was recently released by the Association of Statisticians of American devotional Bodies (ASARB). The most comprehensive application of mind of its kind, it provides detailed shire by shire advice on congregations, members, adherents and attendance for 236 different faiths groups. (The survey differentiates between peculiar denominations within the same transfer.)
Of archbishop areas with population greater than a a thousand thousand, the researchers found Salt Lake City to be the most devotional city with shut to 74 percent identifying as a devotional clinging. The researchers found the greater area of Portland, OR-WA to be the least devotional city with about 32 percent identifying as a devotional clinging.
The researchers set bounds to adherents to be those with an affiliation to a collection including pl of child, members and attendees who are not members, and believe that the clinging standard is the most out and out and worthy of comparison across devotional groups. As the chart below shows, more than 54 percent of adherents were from archbishop areas with population of a a thousand thousand and above.
In catholic, cities where more than 75 percent identified as a religious clinging were in the deep South and in the Midwest. Cities where less than 35 percent identified as a religious clinging were in the West and in the Northeast.
