Pew Research Center: The Age Gap in Religions Around the World

The Pew Research Center recently released this extensive report that illuminates religious beliefs and practices in 106 different countries and territories. This 96-page report, which was based on data culled from thirteen different Pew surveys, investigates how religious beliefs vary by age around the globe. As this report reveals, "adults ages 18 to 39 are less likely than those ages 40 and older to say religion is very important to them in 46 out of 106 countries surveyed by Pew Research Center over the last decade." In contrast, younger adults were more likely to say religion was important to them in just two countries: Ghana and Georgia. In the remaining 58 countries, there was no significant difference in age. In general, the largest age gaps in religious beliefs were found in European, North American, and Latin American countries. Visitors can download the report in full through the link above.
