Income by Religious Affiliation

by

This chart of income groupings by religious affiliation shows there are substantial religious income/class/race divisions across the major American religions. Jews have the highest percentage of people making over $100,000 (46%) with Hindus not far behind (43%).  Historically black protestant churches have by far the poorest members, with 47% of congregant incomes below $30,000.
