New Ellison Research asked 1,007 American adults to report on their attendance at worship services. Results of the study showed that the traditional definitions of “churched” — people who attend services monthly or more often — and “un-churched” — people who do not typically attend frequently enough to be considered “churched” — often doesn’t tell a complete story about how often people actually attend religious worship services. If adults in America are placed in more realistic categories based on their normal behavior, attendance stats at religious services would look like this:

 Attend more than once a week (11%)

 Attend once a week (22%)

 Attend two to three times a month (14%)

 Attend once a month (5%)

 Attend occasionally, not on a regular basis (9%)

 Attend only on religious holidays (10%)

 Do not attend at all (29%)
