47% Will Attend Religious Service to Celebrate Easter

Sunday, March 31, 2013

Belief in the importance of Easter is down slightly, but nearly half of Americans still will attend a religious service to celebrate the holiday.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 39% of American Adults consider Easter one of the nation’s most important holidays, down from the mid- to upper 40s for the last several years. Just 18% think it’s one of the least important holidays, and 40% see it as somewhere in between. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Adults was conducted on March 23-24, 2013 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted byPulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
