Hindus in the US are better educated, most likely to be married and earn more than the members of most other faiths, reveals a new survey.

Nearly half (48 per cent) of Hindus in the country have obtained post-graduate education, compared with only 11 per cent of the adult population overall, according to the extensive survey by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life.

Jews were the next highest with 35 per cent of the population with post-graduate degree.
