Income by religion in the United States

According to the Pew Research Center, Hindus and Jews earn the highest incomes in America. Evangelical Christians, Muslims, and Jehovah's Witnesses earn among the least. It appears that the incomes of the different religious groups are highly correlated with the emphasis they put on education. Evangelicals, for example, are downright hostile towards science.

What causes Hindus and Jews to earn so much? It's education, baby!
Nearly half of Hindus in the U.S., one-third of Jews and a quarter of Buddhists have obtained post-graduate education, compared with only about one-in-ten of the adult population overall. Hindus and Jews are also much more likely than other groups to report high income levels.
In short, if you want your kids to grow up to be wealthy, you don't need them to convert to Hinduism. You just need to ingrain them with an education ethic.
