Did church attendance decrease post-Reformation?

If so, was it because the church recommended that people do something more useful with their time, or because all the fun had gone out of the church and people lost interest? Fundamental questions, but no good general answers to be found. I’m basically interested in N Europe & if poss areas where absenteeism wasn’t punished. Was there some kind of balance: lower frequency of services with compulsory attendance, etc etc
