Summary

The August 2011 Religion & Politics Tracking Survey was conducted by Public Religion Research Institute to examine attitudes on breaking news and emerging issues at the intersection of religion and politics. This survey examined public attitudes toward gay and lesbian people and knowledge about and views of transgender people. Questions also explored the degree to which Americans' opinions about gay and lesbian people differed from views about transgender individuals.

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

Public Religion Research Institute

Collection Procedures

Telephone interviews were conducted in English only, under the direction of Opinion Research Corporation among a national sample of 1,006 adults, 18 years of age or older in the continental United States. Interviews were conducted from August 11, 2011 to August 14, 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.
