How the Typical American Day Has Changed in the Last 15 Years

Religious and spiritual activities

2017

– Average time spent on activity: 1.44 hours/day (-17.2% 15-year change)

– Population engaged in activity: 9.3% (+14.8% 15-year change)

2003

Time for religious and spiritual activities includes how long Americans spend attending religious services and participating in religious practices, like prayer or meditation.

According to the Pew Research Center, 76.5% of Americans reported believing in God and practicing some sort of religion. By 2017, the number of non-religious Americans had jumped from 26.5% to 33%.

The decrease in the number of people who adhere to a religion and its practices may account for the drop in time the average American spends on religious and spiritual activities.
