The Decline of Religion in America as Seen Through a Handful of Graphs

Tobin Grant at Religion News Service has a delightful series of graphs showcasing the “Great Decline” of religion in America in recent years:

The statistics teacher in me has to remind everyone that the decline isn’t as steep as the graph suggests — the vertical axis doesn’t begin at 0% — but a ten percent drop in the number of people identifying with a religious label is still pretty damn amazing.

The other graphs show a decline in church attendance, church membership, and how important people say religion is in their lives.

The best part? There’s no sign that the drops have leveled off yet. There’s every reason to believe they’re going to keep falling for some time.
