Revivals in New York and Ohio, 1825-1835 (ICPSR 7754)

Version V1

The dataset contains two files of data, one that describes characteristics of 1,952 religious revivals in New York State and one that describes characteristics of 431 religious revivals in Ohio, all conducted between 1825 and 1835. All extant issues of ten Protestant periodicals that contained data for the 10-year span studied were examined, and every report of a revival was noted. Variables in both data files pertain to the state, county, and town where the revival occurred, the name and sequence number for each source periodical, the year in which the revival occurred, the number of people involved, and the type of report. The values for "type of report" range from simply relating the occurrence of a revival to the number of people affected and how, such as: number who were anxious, number hopeful conversions, number on probation, number converted, number new church members admitted on examination, and number new church members.
