Congregational Resource Guide
Finding the right resources for your congregation
This website contains abundant information culled from the Pew Forum’s work on the U.S. Religious Landscape. Based on interviews with more than 35,000 adults, this research specifies the religious makeup, religious beliefs and practices of the American public. The website contains many reports: Belief in God, Frequency of Prayer, Religious Attendance, Church-State Law, Social Welfare and much more. Additionally, there are tools that help the user interact with the data. For example, you can explore the difference in religious practice between 14 different kinds of religious adherents (Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Mainline and so forth). Pew also provides analysis of the compiled data, often providing new analysis twice a month. Most of the reports are in depth considerations of the specific research with 35,000 adults noted above. The full 134 page report is available as a download from this site. The report includes a summary of key findings. If you have a question about religious data in America, there is a good chance you will find the answer on this website.
