The Decline of Religious Identity in the United States

By Gary A. Tobin, Sid Groeneman

Institute for Jewish and Community Research, 2004

This report demonstrates that the number of Americans who do not identify with a particular religion is growing. Non-identification is associated with several factors including age, being raised in multiple religious traditions, gender, and geography. The authors find that one-quarter of non-identifiers plan to identify with a religion in the future.
