The Least Religious Metropolitan Area

Forty percent of Americans are very religious, according to a measure of religiosity devised by Gallup, which deems people as very religious if they say religion is an important part of their daily life and they attend religious services weekly or almost every week. 

Interestingly, Gallup breaks down these findings by metropolitan area. The most religious metropolitan area is Provo-Orem, Utah, where 77 percent of residents are very religious. At the other end of the scale, the least religious metropolitan area is Burlington, Vermont, where only 17 percent of the population can be classified as very religious.
