International Social Survey Programme

Religion

The ISSP Religion module series comprises three cross-national surveys conducted in 1991, 1998 and 2008. Successive surveys are always partial replications of earlier surveys.

In 2008 four non-ISSP-member countries, Indonesia, Kenya, Sri Lanka and Tanzania have conducted the survey in the framework of a separate project. These data is also available from the GESIS Data Archive and can be matched to the ISSP 2008 international file.

ISSP Religion modules mainly deal with issues, such as religious attitudes and beliefs, religious socialization, past and current religious practices, religion and governmental connections and aspects of secularization.

Please, note that ISSP Religion data is also available as a cumulated data file, allowing for cross-national analyses over time.
