Americans Change Faiths at Rising Rate, Report Finds

Neela Banerjee reported in The New York Times, February 25, 2008, on the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life's report, "U.S. Religious Landscape Survey".

In Chapter 2 of the report, on page 25, we find,
Overall, 2.6% of the U.S. adult population has switched their affiliation to Catholic after being raised in another faith or in no faith at all. But nearly four times as many people (10.1% of the adult population overall) were raised in the Catholic Church but have since left for another faith or for no faith at all.

Update: At Charlotte was Both, Everybody’s talking.
