What Percentage of Americans Believe in God?



Data Notes

The General Social Survey has been publishing a vast array of data since the 1970s. I decided I wanted to create a visualization that shows how many Americans believe in God. Since everything seems to be about politics recently, I decided to make it a little more interesting by adding a filter that lets you see the results by political party preference. I used the GSS Explorer website to download the 2016 data they have on the subject. Once I had the data, I used Tableau to create the visualization.
