Version V1

This data collection contains public opinion data on compulsory religious instruction in public schools in Quebec. Respondents were asked whether they supported teaching religion in schools, and who (parents, legislators, or students) should decide whether students receive religious instruction in elementary and secondary school. Respondents were also asked their views on the establishment of alternative schools where religion was not taught, who should fund these schools, and whether they would send their children to these institutions. Demographic information collected on respondents includes age, sex, marital status, employment status, income, number of children, number of children in primary and secondary school, types of primary and secondary schools respondent's children attended, religion, and frequency of religious observation or practice.
