Religiosity and domestic violence

The National Couples Survey asked 320 whites if they've been in a physical fight with their spouse, and if they were religious. The percent listed below answered yes to the violence:


Percent
Very religious 6.0
Somewhat religious 10.3
Not religious 11.4


Couples who are not religious are almost twice as likely to be violent as those who are very religious.
