This week, the Public Religion Research Institute released the results of a massive new survey of religious belief in America, the American Values Atlas. The Atlas contains dozens of maps on where people of various religious faiths live in America, which can mean only one thing: time for a map quiz! (Or if you prefer all the answers, GovBeat's got them.)
Below, I've included 10 maps from the Atlas. Your job: tell me which religion is shown in each one. The maps are colored by the percentage of each state's population that identifies as a given religion. Savvy readers will note the legend at the bottom of each map, which should help you figure out the right answer even if you're stumped.
