This week The Takeaway is exploring the relationship millennials, those aged 18-30, have with religion in our series "Young Nation Under God?" We'll be talking to young people of the Jewish faith, young Muslims and millennial Christians about the changing role faith plays for this generation.

According to the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, more than one-quarter of American adults, about 28 percent, have left the faith in which they were raised in favor of another religion, or no religion at all.

A quarter of millennials say they are not affiliated with any particular religion. To the right you'll find an infographic of the trends reported by Pew.
