Second generation Moroccans have higher mosque attendance (Dutch) than the first generation. In 2008 63 percent of older Moroccans visit the mosque "less often" or "often". A decade earlier that was 72 percent. The second generation is attending more frequently. Their attendance rose from 46 tot 66 percent in the past ten years, according to the SCP, a Dutch state social engineering.
The figures point at a religious revival amongst Moroccans in Europe. Additionally it is evidence of budding Muslim family formation. Couples with children have a stronger tendency to attend religious services than childless people.
