Religion Around the World Study of the 2008 International Social Survey Programme - ZA No. 5690

This data file contains data of the ISSP 2008 Religion module from four non-ISSP member countries: Kenya, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Tanzania.

The data were collected within the "Religion Around the World Study of the International Social Survey Programme 2008". The aim of this project was to include countries with religious traditions underrepresented by the ISSP membership. Therefore, additional countries were commissioned to field the study. The project was funded by the Templeton Foundation and chaired by NORC at the University of Chicago. Data harmonization and integration were achieved by the GESIS Data Archive.
