AbstractReligious community is important to the lives of a substantial portion of the population in the United States. Across the country, there are nearly 500,000 churches, temples, and mosques.1 Approximately 4 in 10 Americans attend one of these places of worship at least once a week, 6 in 10 attend at least once a month, and 9 in 10 American adults say that they pray to God at least occasionally.2 These rates of religious involvement have remained fairly constant in the U.S. over the past 70 years.2
