Center for Research on Social Reality [Spain] Survey, December 1990: Religious Beliefs and Practices (ICPSR 6978)
Principal Investigator(s): Centro de Investigaciones Sobre la Realidad Social (CIRES)
This data collection is part of a series of nationwide surveys conducted from October 1990 to June 1996 in Spain. The questionnaires for each of these surveys consisted of three sections. The first section collected information on respondents' attitudes regarding personal, national, and international issues, and included questions on respondents' level of life satisfaction and frequency of visits with relatives, neighbors, and friends. The second section contained a topical module of questions that varied from survey to survey, with this survey's topic focusing on religious beliefs and practices. Among the issues investigated were moral attitudes, religious background, religious practices, attitudes toward religious sacraments, and attitudes toward the Catholic church. Questions in the third section of the questionnaire elicited socioeconomic information, such as respondent's sex, age, marital status, size of household, occupation, education, religion, religiosity, place of birth, and income.
