This collection of survey data provides a reference source both for those designing questionnaires, and for those interested in statistics on a wide range of issues around faith and spirituality.
At present the Reference Survey Data set comprises 122 question stems. The majority of these stems have summary data attached to them which makes it a valuable resource for everyone looking for a quick overview of the field. As an example of the sort of data which the Reference Survey Data set contains the table below shows the results of a BBC / Open University survey which addressed the question of why people do not attend, or belong to churches.
|You don't need to belong to a church to be a Christian
|You don't need to attend a church to be a Christian
|I don't feel comfortable with the church anymore
|I like to combine Christianity with other traditions and practices
|I haven't found a church that suits me
|I haven't got time to go to church
|Peer group pressure
|BBC / Open University 2009, 7,338 Adults in the UK|
