A new study says West Virginians are more religious than residents in the rest of the United States.

West Virginians attend church more often and are more apt to believe their faith could answer most of today's problems, according to a recent poll.

Forty-five percent of West Virginians say religion is very important in their lives as compared to 36 percent of USA respondents.

Seventy-one percent of West Virginians believe religion can answer most of today's problems while only 56 percent believe the same in the USA poll.

Thirty percent of Mountain State residents attend church once or more a week, compared to 23 percent of the USA population.
