[ExI] An anomalous point

what strikes me on this religiosity-income graph is that both of the  
anomalies (Kuwait and the US) are countries with very unevenly  
distributed wealth. It would be interesting to see how religiosity  
relates to wealth within these countries. One cliche assumption would  
be that poorer people in these countries are more religious and  
contribute to the Y-axis position because of their high numbers,  
whereas the very rich are less religious but contribute to the X-asis  
position because of their big wealth.

just a thought,
