In a recent Wellness study by the Brentwood Spiritual Studies Institute of the Greater Los Angeles Area, it is reported that those who identify with a religious affiliation have a higher percentile (3% higher) in their ability to be genuine, feel safe and open with others and in their ability to focus.
For instance, if we consider the Atheist and Agnostic populace as a religious affiliation, we see that the perceived quality of life according to their level of happiness and ability to focus is higher than the total average while in other areas there may be a concern. The other religious affiliations have unique responses as well.
