This Just In: Boston area ranked third-worst "Bible-minded" market by American Bible Society

The Protestant-based American Bible Society has determined via studies that the Boston market area (which includes Worcester and Southern New Hampshire) has the third-worst Biblical view of society, with only only 14% of residents reading the Bible at some point. Boston ranks above Albany, NY and Providence, RI, respectively. The top five markets are in the Bible Belt: Birmingham, AL (51%), Chattanooga and the Tri-Cities in Tennessee (tie at 50%), Roanoke/Lynchburg, VA (48%), and Shreveport, LA (46%). 

Please note that despite the most number of baptized Catholics in New England, many of them have never picked-up a Bible and read it for thirty minutes to gain a Plenary Indulgence. How many priests read from the Bible other than what is required during the Sacred Liturgy? 

Here is the chart to see where your market area ranks:
