"The study, a nationwide survey of 1,019 Latter-day Saints, sought to determine the levels of religiosity among Church members and found that 77% of members say they attend religious services at least once a week, 83% say they pray every day, 98% say they believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ and 97% describe their faith as a Christian religion. The study confirms that Mormons exhibit higher levels of religious commitment than many other religious groups and believe firmly in the distinctive tenets of their faith."

"Satisfaction "with the way things are going in their life" was particularly high among younger Mormons. Of those under age 50, 92% say they are satisfied with their lives (compared with 79% of the general population)."

"The results of this study regarding satisfaction for life, religiosity and faith are not surprising. Latter-day Saints have a deep faith centered in Jesus Christ, which brings contentment in life," said Church spokesman Michael Purdy."

ok...ons study =/= proof, many studies = proof. Also if that is the case evangelicals should have similar results.
