ARIS 2008 on the way

Print More

We’re busy getting ready for the roll-out of the 2008 American Religious Identification Survey. Conducted between February and November of last year, ARIS
2008 is the third in a landmark series of large, nationally representative
surveys of U.S. adults in the 48 contiguous states conducted by my colleagues Barry Kosmin and Ariela
Keysar. Employing the same research methodology as the 1990 and 2001 surveys, ARIS
2008 questioned 54,461 adults in either English or Spanish. With a margin of
error of less than 0.5 percent, it provides the only complete portrait of how
contemporary Americans identify themselves religiously, and how that
self-identification has changed over the past generation. There’s heaps of really interesting new info. Any journalists who want an embargoed copy of the summary report should contact me at or 860-297-2352.
