Young adults less religious than their older counterparts

WASHINGTON (CNS): A study by the Pew Research Centre found that young adults worldwide are generally less religious than their older counterparts by a variety of measures.
 
The study, published in mid-June, which drew upon previous surveys by Pew, concluded that this was true regardless of the predominant religion in the country, its level of economic development, or its level of religiosity. It defined young people as those under 40 years of age and older people as those 40 or older.
