The millennials (young adults now in their 20s and 30s) who do not belong to any organised faith is changing America’s religious landscape, says a report by the respected Pew Research Center, based on a survey of 35,000 people.

The religiously unaffiliated or “nones”, have grown to 23% of the US population. In 2007 the number was at 16%.

However, three out of four Americans still have some religious faith. And 89% of US adults say they believe in God – including the “nones”. This makes America more religious than other advanced industrial nations.
