and apparently Vatican City was not among those countries that were polled.
However... I actually suspect that if they DID conduct the same survey there, there may indeed be more than 1.5% who say that religion is not important in their lives. I mean the next highest in Europe was Romania where 84% reported that religion was important. I think even bishops have doubts.
Israel is interesting. Only 49.5% of Israelis report that religion is important in their lives. Less than the United States. But the fact of the matter is the majority of Israelis are not religious, particularly the Jewish population of the country which is largely Jewish by ethnicity but not by religion. And while to some (including myself) it might be clear that all of the problems in Israel spring from religion, a lot of people reject that and insist that the religions are irrelevant and the problems are actually caused by politics, racism, colonialism or something else. A lot of Israelis feel this way. Anyway thanks for the comment.
The second half of the table needs to reverse its order. That way when the entire table is taken as a whole, you will have a linear progression from religion most important to religion least important countries.
It is quite a subjectve thing though. When asked if something is important to you, one might say it is, while it is only a small part of their lifes, while others might say it isnt, but it might be their entire life. Like when scoring if something is "great"someone might only call something great when they d score it a 9 or a 10, for others anything above 7 is great.
But still interesting quiz.
