Assessing the religiousness of Poles in 2012

In early 2012, the Public Opinion Research Centre (Centrum Badania Opinii Społecznej, CBOS) conducted a study on the religiousness of Poles. The study was commissioned by the Centre for Thought of John Paul II and was conducted from 11 to 16 January 2012. In comparison to previous results obtained in 2009, the research showed a slight decline among the followers of the Catholic religion. The number of people who declared to be Catholic in 2009 was 94.7%, while in January 2012 it was 93.1%. As for religious practice, 54% of those polled practice at least once a week, and 6% claim to do so several times a week. Compared to 2009, the percentage of people declaring themselves as nonbelievers, agnostics or atheists rose from 2.1% to 4.2%.
