Online Datasets

Three datasets assembled during quantitative research projects are available at the digital library of the Association of Religion Data Archives.


Endtime Family (Children of God), 1997

The Endtime Family, or Children of God, data set is an examination of a religious group that is in high tension with its surrounding environment. This data set assesses the validity of applying survey data techniques to high tension religious groups. Additionally, most of the variables are replications of variables from the General Social Survey (GSS) and some variables are replications from the International Social Survey Program, enabling comparisons between the Endtime Family and the general population.


Religious Ecology of 378 American Cities, 1906-1936

This dataset was created for the research reported in Religion, Deviance and Social Control by Rodney Stark and William Sims Bainbridge (1996). This dataset compiles information regarding the religious composition of 378 cities in the United States from 1906 to 1936 and contains observations on church membership, growth and suicide rates.


Metropolitan Area Religious Ecology, 1980

This dataset was created for the research reported in two articles by William S. Bainbridge entitled "The Religious Ecology of Deviance" in American Sociological Review and "Explaining Church Member Rate" in Social Forces. This dataset contains information about religious membership, population and deviant activity in 289 metropolitan statistical areas. The data come from the U.S. Census Bureau as well as a variety of publications on behaviors deemed "deviant."
