Religion around the world studied by international programme

The International Social Survey Programme is an ongoing cross-national collaboration that surveys areas of interest in the social sciences. One set of data of particular interest to religion researchers is its recent Religion III study, which asked participants in 42 countries, including the United States, to answer questions about their religious beliefs, affiliation, participation, political attitudes and more. The survey has been conducted since 1991 to get a broad picture of religion around the world and over time. The most recent religion study, which provides data about worldwide religious, social and political beliefs and affiliations, is available from the website of the Association of Religion Data Archives, a nonprofit organization that stores, catalogs and makes available high-quality data collections. Previous studies are also available including the Religion II survey (1998), and the Religion I survey (1991)
