Summary

This data set offers information on Americans' opinions about the role of the arts relative to religion. The study was designed by Princeton University professor Robert Wuthnow and conducted by the Gallup Organization in Princeton, New Jersey. Respondents were asked questions about their creative and arts-related activities, their attitudes toward the arts, their religious activities, behaviors, beliefs and affiliations, their spiritual (or "uplifting") experiences, their attitudes toward religion and spirituality, and their involvement in charitable activities.

The ARDA has added four additional variables to the original data set to enhance the users' experience on our site.

Collection Procedures

In-person, in-home interviews were conducted with a random national sample of 1530 non-institutionalized U.S. adults ages 18 and over, living in the forty-eight contiguous states. The sample is a probability sample down to the block level, after which households and persons within households were selected through an enumeration process. Notably, the Arts & Religion Survey was one of the last surveys that the Gallup Organization conducted using this methodology. Each interview lasted approximately 50 minutes and included more than 300 questions. The data were collected during the spring of 1999.
