U.S. Religious Knowledge Study, 2010

In a 2010 study conducted by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life, the average American correctly answered 16 of 32 questions gauging religious knowledge. Atheists and agnostics scored significantly higher than Protestants and Catholics on the religion test, and Jews and white evangelical Protestants understood Christianity better, on average, than the general population. Jews and atheists/agnostics stood out for their knowledge of other world religions, and were better informed about the role of religion in public life. The original survey and data file are available on the Association of Religion Data Archives website. The archive also links to the Pew report, available on the Pew Forum website.
