Summary

The Faith Communities Today (FACT) surveys were coordinated by the Hartford Institute for Religion Research at the Hartford Seminary. Forty-two faith groups and denominations participated in the project. Each group designed a questionnaire in order to collect data that could be used to compare local churches, synagogues and mosques within the different participating groups. This dataset represents the results from the survey of Seventh-day Adventist congregations.

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

Sampling Procedures

The Faith Communities Today data brought together 26 individual surveys of congregations representing 41 denominations and faith groups. Project participants developed a common core questionnaire. Groups then conducted their own, typically mail, surveys of a sample of congregations. Usually, the congregation's leader completed the questionnaire.

The project's common core questionnaire includes more than 200 questions covering six broad areas:

* Worship and identity
* Location and facilities
* Internal and mission-oriented programs
* Leadership and organizational dynamics
* Participants
* Finances

The data in this file contain the responses to the survey developed by the Seventh Day Adventists to reflect the language and traditions of the Adventist Church.
