Religious well-being

The most religious Americans also have the highest rates of well-being, according to a Gallup survey.

More than 550,000 people were asked about their physical and emotional health and their work environment.

Overall, the very religious received a well-being score of 68.7 percent, while both the moderately religious and the nonreligious received a score of 64.2 percent.

The very religious said religion is an important part of their daily lives and they attend worship at least every week or almost every week.
