A recent survey by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) showed the shifting religious identifies of Latinos and Hispanics.

The survey, which assessed 1,563 Hispanic living in the U.S., showed a drop in Latino’s affiliating with the Catholic Church and increasing their affiliation with Evangelical Protestants. Catholic affiliation decreased by 16 percent from 69% to 53% while affiliation with Evangelical Protestantism increased by 6 percent. In addition the number of Latinos with no religious affiliation increased from 5% to 12%.

Hispanics generally have a more favorable impression of Pope Francis, the first Latin American pope, than of the Catholic Church itself. According to the survey “nearly 7-in-10 (69%) Hispanics have a favorable view of Pope Francis, compared to 54% who have a favorable view of the Catholic Church. Among Catholics, more than 8-in-10 (84%) has a favorable view of the current pope, and roughly as many (81%) have a favorable view of the Catholic Church.”

PRRI is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to research at the intersection of religion, values, and public life.
