Samir Shrivastava | HENB | Washington DC | Nov 8, 2016:: Among Americans, Hindu are the most likely (77 percent) to have a college degree, according to new data from FacTank from Pew Research Center. They are followed by Unitarian Universalists (67 percent), and Jews and Anglicans (both 59 percent). The following table from Pew shows the data for all religious groups (and atheists).
According to a chart posted in this analysis; 77% of Hindus have college degrees, thus topping this chart which lists 30 U.S. religious groups. Among the religious groups given; Jews are at number 3, Buddhists at 7, Atheists at 9, Muslims at 12, United Methodist Church at 13, Mormons at 16, Catholics at 19, Southern Baptist Convention at 24, Jehovah’s Witness at 28, etc.
See the Pew Chart here:
Given the strong correlation between educational attainment and economic success, it is not surprising that Jews and Hindus, on average, have high household incomes, with four-in-ten Jews (44%) and roughly a third of Hindus (36%) living in households with annual incomes of at least $100,000, according to the 2014 study.
Other religious groups also have a higher percentage of college graduates than the full sample of more than 35,000 U.S. adults surveyed in the 2014 Religious Landscape Study, among whom 27% completed university. They include Buddhists and members of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) – both at 47% – as well as Orthodox Christians (40%), Muslims (39%) and Mormons (33%).
Since Catholics make up one-in-five adults, it is not surprising that their share of members with a college degree (26%) roughly mirrors that of the general public.
One-in-five members of historically black Protestant denominations – the National Baptist Convention (19%) and the African Methodist Episcopal Church (21%) – have a college degree, as do members of the Southern Baptist Convention (19%).
Hindus in US are emerging as more educated, economically sound, influential and advanced community indeed.
Different Govt agencies, NGOs and Political Parties also passed their opinions that Hindus in US are most contributing and successful citizens there.
