Summary

The Religion and 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 public attitudes toward religious liberty and the separation of church and state. Questions explored Americans' opinions regarding whether they feel religious liberty is being threatened and the contraception coverage mandate.

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