Where are you most likely to find a UU?
Here's a map showing the population density of Unitarian Universalists in the United States, county by county, based on the 2000 Census and membership statistics from the UUA. I don't know whether members of the Church of the Larger Fellowship are included, but I hope they are. At any rate, the most densely UU-populated parts of the country don't exceed 1.5 percent of the population. For comparison, there are several counties with between 10 and 35.2 percent of the population affiliated with the United Church of Christ, while Episcopalians constitute 0.1 to 1.8 percent of the population almost everywhere. And check out the map of the Jewish-populated parts of the country: the pale yellow counties — which track the 0.1 to 1.5 percent range and are therefore comparable to the most UU-dense counties, are scattered all over the country. Here's the map showing the dominant religious regions of the country; here's the complete guide to maps.
