More Born Again: New Barna research finds 45% of all U.S. adults meet the Barna Group “born again” criteria. That’s up from 31% in ‘83. It hovered in the 36% to 43% range from ‘92 through ‘05. The current figure represents the largest single-year increase since ‘91. A 16-point rise among Baby Boomers since the early ‘90s is credited for the rise. With 53% of Boomers currently meeting the born again criteria, that generation has now surpassed 48% within the preceding two generations. Slightly more than a third Baby Busters and Mosaics fit the criteria. (Barna Online 3/27/06)
