Religion in America

USA Today has this very interesting interactive map here on the breakdown of religious affiliation by state. It is from the Pew Forum on religion which is notorious for being somewhat slanted, given Mr. Pew's own anti-institutional religion views on things, but this seems pretty straight forward enough. I would be interested to know how he calculates "unaffiliated." Is that unchurched or atheist/agnostic only, or does that also include the "spiritual but not religious crowd, the "All I need is me and Jesus!" crowd, and the "Protestant floaters" that attend church occasionally but seldom at the same church more than once or twice in a row?
