Romania the Outlier

Romania the Outlier October 6, 2017


As a follow-up to yesterday’s post about visiting Transylvania, here’s another bit of information that shows why Romania is fascinating. A recent survey suggests that more people in Romania believe in God – or at least, say they believe in God when asked on a survey – than in any other country in Europe.

For more on these fascinating statistics, see Danut Manastireanu’s post about religious beliefs in the European Union, and Hemant Mehta’s posts about the statistics for the Czech Republic at the opposite end of the spectrum from Romania, and the decline in religiosity in Scotland. And for the survey itself, see the Pew Forum website.
