:::First, let me applaud you [[User:Conservative|Conservative]], I know we haven't always seen eye to eye here, but I think the title change is a much better fit to the data. Thank you. Second, in response to [[User:AugustO|AugustO's]] question, I was wondering the same thing. Here's what I found:
:::*[http://www.gallup.com/poll/153479/Mississippi-Religious-State.aspx Gallup Poll stating that 32% of American's are "non-religious"]
:::*[http://www.pewforum.org/Social-Welfare/prison-chaplains-preface.aspx article describing Pew interview/survey of prison chaplains]
:::*[http://www.pewforum.org/uploadedFiles/Topics/Issues/Social_Welfare/Religion%20in%20Prisons.pdf PDF Results of above Pew survey suggesting 10.6% of inmates are "non-religious"]
:::*[http://www.bop.gov/news/research_projects/published_reports/gen_program_eval/volunteer_cpp.pdf PDF findings provided by the Federal Bureau of Prisons; appears to suggest 2% atheist prison population]
 
:::I'm not a statistician, so I could be misreading these, I just thought I'd provide what I found. [[User:Fnarrow|Fnarrow]] 11:36, 16 May 2013 (EDT)
