Religious trends revealed through faith opinion polls

A set of 23 news organization polls conducted between 1979 and 2005 shows religious trends. For example, five related Gallup polls surveyed self-identified Catholics on a series of topics including individual freedom, moral authority and autocratic vs. democratic decision-making in the Catholic Church. The result was a longitudinal study of changing attitudes. And in 2001 the ABC News Beliefnet poll asked a random national sample of Americans for their religious and political affiliations and their views on stem cell research and abortion. To explore these wide-ranging and informative polls of religious attitudes and opinions, visit the website of the Association of Religion Data Archives, which publishes the latest data on religion for researchers as well as educators, journalists, students and religious congregations.
