Summary

The PRRI/RNS Religion News Survey was conducted by Public Religion Research Institute, in partnership with Religion News Service, to examine attitudes on breaking news and emerging issues at the intersection of religion and politics. This survey examined attitudes about the compatibility of Christian values and capitalism. Questions measured respondents' feelings about the willingness of businesses to act ethically, the extent to which the federal budget reflects the nation's priorities, and the fairness of having wealthier Americans pay more taxes than the middle class or those less well off.

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

Funded By

Public Religion Research Institute

Collection Procedures

Telephone interviews were conducted in English only, under the direction of Opinion Research Corporation among a nationwide sample of 1,010 adults, 18 years of age or older, in the continental United States. Interviews were conducted from April 14-17, 2011. All interviews were conducted on landline telephones. The randomly sampled telephone numbers were subject to up to four different call attempts.

Sampling Procedures

The sample was derived by an unrestricted random-digit dial procedure, which minimizes serial bias and includes both listed and unlisted telephone numbers. Only one interview was conducted within an individual household. The sample was fully replicated and stratified by region to increase its representativeness.
