California is a pretty religious state -- about 54 percent of residents regularly attended religious services during 2000, which is pretty typical for the nation but well below the 80 percent rates found in Utah and Louisiana, according to a nationwide survey of congregations conducted by the Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies. But there is wide disparity across the state in religious adherents -- Northern California generally has fewer regular church/mosque/temple attendees than Southern California.
