Summary
The Presbyterian Panel began in 1973 and is an ongoing panel study in which mailed and web-based questionnaires are used to survey representative samples of constituency groups of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). These constituency groups include members, elders, pastors serving in a congregation and specialized clergy serving elsewhere.

The August 2013 and February 2017 Panel surveys both dealt with race and ethnicity, and the inclusion of a number of identical questions in the two surveys allows for analysis of change over time.

This dataset contains data from clergy in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

Collection Procedures
"A total of 6,743 panelists (sampled and volunteer) were invited to participate in this survey. Surveys were written in English only and were distributed via both web-based and paper questionnaires. The paper questionnaire was mailed, along with the Demographic Profile questionnaire, on July 14, 2015 to 5,483 individuals who were sampled to be panelists. In addition, the entire population of worshipping communities for whom we had mailing addresses was sent invitations for their leader or a participant to join the panel. The web survey was distributed on September 3, 2015 via email invitation to 1,029 panel volunteers. All web non-respondents were sent email reminders on September 9, 2015 and September 17, 2015. Returns for both versions of the survey were accepted through September 27, 2015." Awareness and Understanding of the Presbyterian Mission Agency: 2016 Presbyterian Panel Survey
