Marriage patterns by religion

Here's an interesting graphic from the Pew Foundation about Americans' marriage patterns by religion.

What patterns do you see in the data?

Is there some reason Islam is missing from the graphic?

Good question, and i don't know. I've noticed Islam missing in some of Pew's tables before. not sure why.

Wow! I'd never seen that before. I didn't realize we Catholics kept within the faith as much as that. The data seems to show that the more structured a faith is, the more one keeps within it to marry.

Islam may not be there if they were not statistically significant numbers in the particular sub survey.

yes, I suppose that might be the case, but it's strange that they have plenty of Hindus and other less-numerous religions but not Muslims.
