America’s Shifting Religious Demography

Last year, for the first time ever, Protestants lost their majority status in an annual survey conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute. Only 47 percent of America identifies as Protestant, with rates as high as 81 percent in Mississippi and as low as 10 percent in Utah.
Orthodox Christians account for 1 percent of the population nationally and in a number of states. Alaska is the only state where their share of the population is larger, at 5 percent.
Muslims account for 1 percent of the nation and 2 percent in Michigan, New York and New Jersey.
