Summary

This survey investigated Americans' opinions on end-of-life issues including euthanasia, decisions over stoppage of treatment, wills, and more. Religious variables include religious affiliation, church attendance, subjective importance of religion, and whether clergy at respondents' churches speak out on public issues, including end-of-life issues. The survey was commissioned by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press.

Sampling Procedures

From Pew's methodology report: "The sample was designed to represent all continental U.S. telephone households. The telephone sample was provided by Survey Sampling International, LLC (SSI) according to PSRAI specifications. The sample was drawn using standard list-assisted random digit dialing (RDD) methodology. Active blocks of telephone numbers (area code + exchange + two-digit block number) that contained three or more residential directory listings were equally likely to be selected; after selection two more digits were added randomly to complete the number. This method guarantees coverage of every assigned phone number regardless of whether that number is directory listed, purposely unlisted, or too new to be listed. After selection, the numbers were compared against business directories and matching numbers purged."
