And this contributes to a rising sex ratio disparity among Utah Mormons that doesn’t manifest elsewhere.

People are abandoning organized religion in large numbers, and those with no denominational affiliation now constitute about 20% of the population.

We suggest that the mandate to serve a mission forces the hand of young men in Utah, and essentially “outs” those who don’t want to go as less committed to the church.

Being thusly “outed” then lowers the costs of, and provides a pathway for, eventual disaffection.

Traditionally, this has provided added incentive for Utah Mormons with marginal personal religiosity to remain in the church, and to follow church behavioral mandates.

However, as Mormon majorities in Utah have declined, the salience of this religious subculture is waning.
