Another set of data are from the 1993 Toward Shaping the Agenda, A National survey of Catholic Religious Education study, made up of 10 data sets covering adults, bishops, children by age groups, diocesan leaders, elementary school principals, and religion teachers/catechists. Access the collection of surveys of the Catholic Church and a number of other studies for free at the ARDA.
