Here is a link to a larger map.

There was an interesting map moving around the internet, ultimately gleaned from the US census of 2010 that showed the 2nd most-spoken language beyond Spanish in the United States; it was diaried here as well (if someone will provide the link, I'll include it.) Now, we have a by-state map of the 2nd most prevalent religion being followed in the US:

Some interesting observations from the map:

Islam has a heavy prevalence in the East and Central US, but particularly in the South!

Judaism is tops in the Northeast as might be expected, but also is the 2nd-highest followed in a few non-obvious central US states.

South Carolina: Haven for Baha'i!

Hinduism is tops (besides Christianity) in Arizona.

Buddhism has the most land mass out of any of them!

Thought this was interesting enough to share with the community. Happy Sunday, everyone.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
