Additional Information: By contrast, 51 percent of members of the Silent Generation attend religious services at least once a week. Surveys that ask respondents how often they attend religious services typically obtain higher estimates of rates of weekly attendance than other, more indirect methods of data collection (such as asking respondents to keep a diary of how they spend their days, without specific reference to attendance at worship services).
