Millennials Traditional On Some Faith Beliefs

By Hillary May

Young adults today are considered less religious than previous generations, but a recent report shows Americans age 18 to 29 still remain traditional on a few religious beliefs.

"Though young adults pray less often than their elders do today, the number of young adults who say they pray every day rivals the portion of young adults who said the same in prior decades," reported a study from the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.

The report, "Religion Among the Millennials," is part of a Pew Research Center series that focuses on the values and behaviors of teens that make up the millennial generation -- those who were born after 1980.

The report is based on data from a variety of Pew Research Center surveys that compare the beliefs of the millennial generation with older generations.
