A recent study from Grey Matter Research and Consulting compiled statistics on how Americans use the internet for religious purposes.
“The sample of 1,011 online adults is accurate to within ±3.1 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level with a 50 percent response distribution.
“The study was conducted in all 50 states. Respondents’ age, education, household income, geography, racial/ethnic background, Internet use, and gender were carefully tracked and weighted to ensure appropriate representation and accuracy.”
This is one informative and interesting infographic!
What’s Up With Evangelicals?
I found it interesting that overall, Evangelicals claim to attend church more and use the Internet for more religious purposes. I’ve been trying to come up with a reason for that but I’ve got nothing.
Anyone have a hypothesis as to why this is?
I have some generalizations based on my own life experience with my family and friends but it is by no means backed by any known research or knowledge. Are Evangelicals more susceptible to the “Hawthorne Effect,” saying something because they know they are part of a study and they know this is what the “Christian world-view” expects of them?
