Pew Research Center’s researchers in religion and public life study religious change in the United States and around the world, including America’s religious landscape, global demographic trends among religious groups, the role religion plays in politics and societies, and restrictions on religious freedom worldwide. Key topics of research include the role of religion in U.S. politics, the experiences of religious minorities in America (such as MuslimsMormons and Jews), the growth of religious “nones,” the intersection of religion and national identity, government restrictions on religion, and demographic projections for religious groups around the world.
