Abstract

The US is often taken to be a contrary case to the general decline of religion in the West. David Voas and Mark Chaves find that religiosity is in fact decreasing in the US, and for the same reason that it has been falling elsewhere. They comment that Americans are not becoming less religious over their lives; rather, the more religious generations born in the early 20th century are dying off and being replaced by newer generations that are less likely to be religious.
