How The Swiss Practice Their Faith

This dataset of 3,780 cases from 1998, 2006 and 2008 comprises the first representative survey of religious congregations in Switzerland. A representative sample of approximately 1,000 Swiss congregations was developed, and a leader from each congregation who was identified as possessing expertise on their congregation was interviewed. The central questions of the 153-variable survey dealt with Swiss congregational vitality and congregational offerings in the areas of worship, and social, political and cultural activities. A particular emphasis was placed on identifying small and relatively unknown groups.

The study also generated a related publication, “The Religious Communities in Switzerland, Properties, Activities, Development.” The dataset is archived on the Association of Religion Data Archives, an online public database of high-quality American and international religion research.
