This study surveyed heads of households or wives of heads of households in order to obtain an inventory of the basic (religious) value structure in Taiwan. Attitudinal and behavioral differences between rural and urban dwellers were also explored. The questionnaire concentrated on the following areas: socioeconomics, living conditions, family, social interaction, leisure time, process and results of urbanization, value system in general, religious attitudes and behavior, and perception of and contact with Christianity in Taiwan. There were 1,882 respondents in the cross-section sample and an additional 340 exclusively from the Hsien stratum. Demographic data include sex, age, marital status, religion, education, parents' education, and family income.

Four-stage stratified probability sampling. The cities were oversampled due to their considerably smaller populations compared with rural areas.

The adult population of Taiwan, including persons living in private institutions (convents, monasteries, etc.) as well as professional military and retired soldiers housed in military compounds that were publicly accessible. Intentionally excluded were people living in the smaller and larger islets (including the Pescadores) belonging to Taiwan, mountain people, Caucasians and Blacks, and all those living in public institutions (prisons, army barracks, etc.).
