For the First Time Ever, Less Than Half of Americans Belong to a House of Worship

For the first time since Gallup has been measuring churchgoers in the United States, less than 50 percent of Americans say they are members of a house of worship.The results, released last month, come from a 2020 survey.“U.S. church membership was 73% when Gallup first measured it in 1937 and remained near 70% for the next six decades, before beginning a steady decline around the turn of the 21st century,” Gallup reported.

Since 1999, Gallup results show that the percentage of Americans who say they are members of a house of worship has been steadily declining, to an all-time low 47 percent in 2020.
