Income variation between religions in US

Surveys conducted by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life find that income varies greatly within and across American religious groups.   Interestingly, I notice that Buddhist household being very similar to mainline Christian households as far as income distribution and close to the national average.  Check the full report here.

The report also has an interesting statement about atheists/agmostic/non-believers with more than twice the proportion of people making at least 100,000 per year compared to those making 30,000 or less. 



Working Class Buddhist.

  1. Do you happen to know if that’s an individual scale or household?

    Ultimately doesn’t matter, just curious.

    • From what I can tell it is by individual reporting but they could be reporting household income.
