Average church & Danish women

A Gallup Poll conducted among 11,612 Danish adults discovered that the average churchgoer in Denmark is a female who: Is well-educated and over 60; Reads fiction every day; Goes to fitness training once or twice a week; Has a driving licence; Goes on holiday somewhere in Europe once a year, often camping; and votes centre-right (the present government).

This intriguing statistical portrait conveys the impression of treadmills all over Denmark full of churchgoing women aged over 60, presumably as preparation for their summer camping trips. The formidable reputation of female Danish Lutherans has surely increased as a consequence of this report.

Other findings confirm the previously reported low rate of regular church attendance (2%) with 24% of Danes never going to church. 32% of churchgoers are aged 12-29 years old.
