New study finds women generally more religious than men

Women were found to be more religiously devout than men, particularly among Christian believers, according to a new study published by the Guardian.
The study, The Gender Gap in Religion Around the World, conducted by Pew Research Center, found that around 83.4 percent of women identify with a faith group, while the percentage is about 79.9 percent for men.

However, the study points out that historically most, if not all, religious leaders were men.
Additionally, many religious groups only allow men to be clergy, while others have only permitted women to take religious posts in recent decades.

The study collected data on believers of many religions, including Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, and Buddhists, in addition to those who do not identify with any religion, of whom 55 percent were men and 45 percent were women.

More than half of those who identified with a religion were women, since they made up 53 percent of the Christians interviewed, 52 percent of Jews and 54 percent of Buddhists.
There was equal number of men and women who identified as Muslims.
