Belief in God:Russia And Netherlands Show Greatest Change In Belief In God

Huff Post

new report released by NORC at the University of Chicago, “Beliefs About God Across Time And Countries” measures belief in God in 30 countries around the world, and how those beliefs in God have changed over time. The survey asked three questions to determine whether the respondents were atheists, agnostics, deists, waivers, weak believers, strong believers, whether their beliefs about God had changed over time, and whether they believe in a personal God.

One of the most interesting aspects of the report is the change in belief in God over time. Change in belief in God is measured by the difference of “current believers, former atheists” and “current atheists, former believers.” The report found that in 2008, Russia, Latvia and Slovenia showed the highest increase in belief in God, and the Netherlands, Spain and Australia showed the largest decrease in belief in God.
