What do philosophers believe?

Some law professors and students may enjoy the results of a survey of the philosophical opinions of nearly 900 faculty at leading PhD programs throughout the Anglophone world.  There were a lot of questions about fairly technical philosophical debates, but many of the results will be easily intelligible to those outside the field:  e.g., about three-quarters of philosophers are atheists, while less than 15% believe in God; but a solid majority of philosophers believe in objective moral truths, while only about a quarter hold the correct view!
