The more educated you are…. January 25, 2007

Posted by Sharath Rao in America, india, science, statistics.

Another survey – this about religion and India. A similar table, similar statistics for America. [ Harris Poll ]

Some differences –

57% believe in heaven/hell in India ; 85% according to this survey. [ Remember thats a Fox news poll ! ]

Biggest difference yet I think is this : More educated you are in America, less religious you are. While in India, its the other way around. Baffling, ain’t it – something about American education or Indian religion. :p

Also rural India is less religious than urban India ; in America its possibly the other way around – I have no data on this though. Understandably, food, shelter and clothing is more fundamental needs than belief, philosophy etc. – its not surprising thats on top of their mind.
