Changing Religious Affiliation of Hispanic Americans

In the recently released report on from the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI), it was found that 69% of Hispanic Americans surveyed reported that, as children, they were Catholic while as adults, 53% report that they are still Catholic and 16% of respondents say that their religious affiliation has changed to Unaffiliated, 7%, Evangelical Protestant, 6%, Mainline Protestant, 3%, and Non-Christian, 1%.

The data are taken from the Hispanic Values Survey of a random sample of 1,563 Hispanic American adults who are a part of the GfK (Growth for Knowledge) Knowledge Panel from August 23 to September 3, 2013 via the internet. The Panel is comprised of randomly selected and invited addresses that may be selected to participate in surveys or polls. If selected to participate in a survey or poll, a household that does not have a computer and/or internet access may receive internet access and/or a netbook for use in completing the needed forms. Also if selected for a survey or poll, individuals may be compensated for their participation.
