54%

of Americans say they attend religious services a few times a year or less

Source: Pew Research Center
Additional Information: This includes 17 percent of Americans who say they never attend religious services, up from 11 percent in 2009. 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). Learn more about "social desirability bias" here.
