That shows atheists are a tiny fraction. "Unaffiliated" is not synonymous with "atheist" (or "agnostic", for that matter, which is a larger -but still small- sliver). It would include deists, new age crystal people, etc.

I look forward to the day when someone is asked if they believe in a god and they have to stop and think for a moment. I read an article a while back in which that was exactly what happened when they asked that of Swedes (I think it was Sweden...maybe Norway?). In the meantime I will just have to be satisfied with decline in religiosity, such as it is.
