A new Gallup survey looking at religiousness in the US could have essentially just rerun its previous findings on the subject. Mississippi is once again the most religious state in the union, with 61% of residents falling into the "very religious" category—defined by Gallup as those who say religion makes up an important part of their day and go to religious services weekly, or close to it. Some 41% of Americans fell into the category in 2013, while 29% of Americans defined themselves as non-religious. Bringing up the rear among the devout, once again: Vermont, with only 22% very religious residents.
