Utah, California, Idaho, and Arizona have the highest percentage of Latter-day Saints, but which US state is #5?

It comes as no shock that Utah is the state with the largest percentage of Latter-day Saints living in the United States with 31.6%. Some might be surprised that California is ahead of both Idaho and Arizona with 11.3% but given the size of California and its high population, this makes a lot of sense. State size and population is perhaps the same reason Texas and Washington come in at 5.4% and 4.3% respectively. A new graphic from the Church News, allows us to explore the breakdown of Latter-day Saints in the United States by state.  

Things really start to get congested between 1% and 2.7% as 12 states fall in that range. Find out if your state is one of them by clicking here.    

An article published by Deseret News in July reported that Latter-day Saints made up just 1% of the U.S. population in 2020.
