The majority (62%) of Slovaks belong to the Roman Catholic Church (i.e. Latin Rite); with the addition of a further 4% of Greek Catholics, all Catholics account for 66%. Members of other churches, including those non-registered, account for 1.1% of the population. The Eastern Orthodox Christians are mostly found in Ruthenian (Ukrainian) areas. The Roman Catholic Church divides the country into 8 dioceses including 3 archdioceses. Generally about one third of church members regularly attend church services. The religious situation is dramatically different from that in the neighbouring Czech Republic, which is notable for its atheist or irreligious majority.
While the country had an estimated pre-World War II Jewish population of 90,000, only about 2,300 Jews remain today.
