The number of Americans who say religion has a significant impact on their daily lives is on the rise, according to a new survey released Thursday.
The survey by the Pew Research Center found that 43 percent of Americans now say religion is a major part of their daily life, up from 28 percent in 2015.
The number of people who say they are religious is at its highest point since Pew began tracking the topic in 1999.
The survey also found that 42 percent of American adults say religion affects their daily decisions, up five points from last year.
The percentage of Americans saying religion has had a significant effect on their life has risen from 28 to 40 percent.
The most recent survey from the Pew Forum found that nearly two-thirds of adults believe religion has an impact on society.
The Pew Forum also found Americans are becoming more accepting of other faiths.
For the first time, 56 percent of adults now say that religious beliefs should not be a factor in their public policy decisions, while 48 percent say they should.
And while more than a quarter of adults say that religion has no impact on how they live their lives, less than one in five Americans say that is the case.
