All the Mormons Live in Utah

It's probably no surprise that the Church of the Latter-day Saints is the top religion in all of Utah's counties. Did you know however that most of the south-east in made up of evangelical protestants.

Mapping Religious Adherence in the US shows the most worshiped religion in each U.S. state and the percentage of the population actively practicing the religion.

The map makes great use of a bivariate choropleth view to show the top religious group in each U.S. county, with the intensity of each color showing the religious adherence for that county (the proportion of the population actively practicing the religion). You can click on any county on the map to view the most popular religion and the percentage of active worshipers.
