Mississippi is the most religious state in the nation and Vermont is the least, according to a new poll.

Mississippi had the most residents of any state in 2013 say religion is an important part of their daily lives and they attend services almost every week or more, according to a Gallup poll released Monday, with 61 percent of its citizens very religious. Vermont had the fewest of the states, with 22 percent of its citizens very religious.

Mississippi and Vermont have topped their respective lists since Gallup began polling on the subject in 2008, with little variance in the top states each year.

Following Mississippi in very religious residents was Utah, with 60 percent; Alabama, with 57 percent; Louisiana, with 56 percent; and South Carolina and Tennessee tied for fifth, each with 54 percent.

Rounding out the top five least religious states behind Vermont were New Hampshire, with 24 percent; Maine, with 27 percent; Massachusetts, with 28 percent; and Oregon, with 31 percent.
