U.S. Religious Knowledge Quiz

Step 1 of 16


  • How much do you know about religion? And how do you compare with the average American? Here’s your chance to find out.

    Take our short, 15-question quiz, and see how you do in comparison with 3,412 randomly sampled adults who were asked these and other questions in the U.S. Religious Knowledge Survey. This national poll was conducted by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life from May 19 through June 6, 2010*, on landlines and cell phones, in English and Spanish.

    When you finish the quiz, you will be able to compare your knowledge of religion with participants in the national telephone poll. You can see how you compare with the overall population as well as with people of various religious traditions, people who attend worship services frequently or less often, men and women, and college graduates as well as those who did not attend college.

    *Your responses on the quiz do NOT affect the U.S. Religious Knowledge Survey’s results. Correction added April 2011: Interviewing for the survey actually was completed on Friday, June 4, 2010.
