National Religious Attitudes Survey of Catholics, 1997
SummaryThis study was designed to examine controversial issues facing the Catholic Church today. Four broad categories of issues were examined. First, the investigators studied attitudes towards Church teachings (e.g., abortion, women in the priesthood, etc.). Second, they analyzed religious practices. Third, the researchers were interested in respondents' reactions toward a number of assertions about the Church and its role in American society. Finally, they assessed various dimensions of Mass, including its primary purpose and the role of "inclusive language."
