Which Nationalities Consider Religion Most Important?


Around the world, which nationalities place the most importance on religion in their daily lives? Pew's 2015 Global Attitudes Survey revealed that almost all Ethiopians, Senegalese and Indonesians consider religion very important. The survey found that religion is generally more important to people in poorer countries than richer ones. Americans are firmly in the middle of the pack with just over half (53 percent) considering religion an important aspect of their lives.
