The International Social Survey Program (ISSP) is an ongoing program of crossnational collaboration. Formed in 1983, the group develops topical modules dealing with important areas of social science as supplements to regular national surveys. The 1991 "Religion" module includes data from Austria, West Germany, East Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Northern Ireland, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, and the United States. The module covers three main topic areas: (1) general attitudes toward various social issues such as the legal system, sex, and the economy (e.g., opinions of legal fairness and the economic climate), (2) religion (e.g., attitudes about God, heaven, hell, life after death, personal and family members' religious status, attendance at religious services, and religious commitment), and (3) demographics (e.g., marital status, age, sex, education, occupation, family composition, and political affiliations).

These data were supplied by the Zentralarchiv fuer empirische Sozialforschung in Koeln, Germany. To provide funding agencies with essential information about the use of archival resources, and to facilitate the exchange of information about research activities based on the Zentralarchiv's holdings, each user is expected to send two copies of each completed manuscript to the Zentralarchiv. All manuscripts utilizing data made available through the Zentralarchiv should acknowledge that fact.
