In 20 states, mostly in the Midwest and South, Islam is the largest non-Christian faith

Christianity is by far the largest religion in the United States; more than three-quarters of Americans identify as Christians

. A little more than half of us identify as Protestants, about 23 percent as Catholic and about  2 percent as Mormon.

But what about the rest of us? In the Western U.S., Buddhists represent the largest non-Christian religious bloc in most states.

Hindus come in second place in Arizona and Delaware, and there are more practitioners of the Baha’i faith in South Carolina than anyone else.
