Religion and income

Religion and income distribution.  Not sure I get exactly what data they used to get this, but still kind of interesting.  Incomes seem to skew upward the smaller the group, which makes a certain amount of sense.
 The Hindu numbers surprised me a bit.  I was guessing that has something to do with the high percentage of Indians in tech/healthcare professions, presumably making $100k+.  

Things to ponder on a Sunday


  1. Additional, from Red State, Blue State: In the South churchgoers tend to be drawn more from the upper classes. In the North from the lower. It's not stark but it's pretty solid, I recall.

  2. And I thought Buddhists weren't attached to wealth and possessions. Or something.

    History and socio-economic status explain a lot.
