Gallup Poll: Arkansas Has The Fifth-Highest Church Attendance In The Country
ARKANSAS (KFSM) – A new poll released by Gallup reveals that Arkansas has the fifth-highest church attendance in the United States.
According to the poll, 45 percent of Arkansas residents attend church on a weekly basis. Utah had the highest percentage of weekly attendance with 51 percent of its residents attending weekly religious services.
Oklahoma placed at number ten on the list with 39 percent of its residents attending a weekly religious service, the poll states.
The results are based on daily tracking interviews done in 2014 with 177,030 U.S. adults, according to Gallup. Poll workers would ask those being surveyed “How often do you attend church, synagogue or mosque — at least once a week, almost every week, about once a month, seldom or never?” The survey reflects those who responded “at least once a week.”
Vermont has the lowest population of residents who attend a weekly religious service, according to the data. Only 17 percent of its residents attend a religious service weekly.
