The Pew Forum recently issued a detailed summary of survey information about Mormons gathered as part of a much larger survey of religious life in the United States. It is a very readable summary, noting that Mormons comprise 1.7% of adults in the US; 35% of Mormon adults live in Utah and 13% live in California; Mormons are more likely to be married and more likely to be a college graduate than a member of the general population; and so forth.
Several Mormon blogs have commented on the survey. Two nice reviews:
- What I Found Interesting and Unusual in the Pew Report at Times and Seasons, giving bullet-point comments on the most interesting data in the report.
- Everything you thought you knew about Mormons is wrong at American Testament, with its own shorter bullet-point summary of the survey results.
