Age is a significant factor in Catholics' church attendance: Forty-eight percent of those 45 and older attend at least weekly, compared with 24 percent of Catholics under age 45. There's no such age gap in church attendance among Protestants.
This ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted by telephone March 10-13, 2005, among a random national sample of 1,001 adults, including 222 Catholics. The results have a three-point error margin for the full population, and 6.5 points for Catholics. Sampling, data collection and tabulation was done by TNS of Horsham, Pa.
