FROM NOTHING TO SOMETHING: MEASURING NONRELIGION THROUGH SURVEYS
This is part of a series of workshops this fall targeting key questions linked to the study of nonreligion. This particular workshop discussed the different aspects and challenges of creating a survey to measure nonreligion. The NCF project has as one of its core objectives to find new ways of measuring nonreligion. To that end, a group of ten NCF researchers has been working on constructing a survey instrument that seeks to measure substantive nonreligion in the populations of the various countries in the project. In this workshop, Ryan Cragun and Peter Beyer present and discuss the challenges faced in this effort and present aspects of the outcome: the survey instrument.
