While media reports have highlighted a supposed significant decline in women’s religious attendance, this is not accurate, according to the national Baylor Religion Survey. In 2007, 38 percent of women, compared with 26 percent of men, described themselves as “very religious.” In 2010, 34 percent of women and 25 percent of men said they attended weekly, according to General Social Survey data. “The real story is that across 40 years, there have been only small variations in church attendance,” says Byron Johnson, Ph.D., director of Baylor’s Institute for Studies of Religion. (Terry Goodrich, assistant director of Baylor Media Communications, covers research and faculty in the Institute and pitched this story in September.)
