Why Americans Turn Their Backs On Religion

The amount of people identifying as atheists or agnostics has increased steadily in the United States in recent years. Along with those saying their religion "is nothing in particular", they make up 23 percent of the U.S. population. Back in 2007, it was only 16 percent. Pew Research conducted a survey to find the reasons for disaffiliating among those who were raised in religious housholds. 49 percent turned their backs on religion due to a lack of belief while 20 percent disliked organized religion.

This chart shows reasons for disaffiliating among those who were raised in religious households (2016).Infographic: Why Americans Turn Their Backs On Religion | Statista
