Survey breakdowns

At an Institute so grounded in science and technology, where do faith and spirituality fit in? MIT isn’t famous for being a god-fearing place. Few people know that there are 16 chaplains and nearly 30 student groups dedicated to religion at the Institute. So why are they here?

Last week, The Tech surveyed 2,943 undergraduate and graduate students at MIT — about 27 percent of the student population — on their religious life. 1,295 (44 percent) were undergraduates.

These four interactive infographics break down parts of the religion survey data by dorm, by year, by major, and by religious affiliation.
