Summary

This survey provides data on the level and types of civic involvement of a nationally representative sample of American adults. Extensive questions about respondents' religious activities and beliefs are also included in the survey. The results were originally intended as a comparison to qualitative in-depth interviews with a different sample of respondents (qualitative interviews not available).

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