Appendix D. Teen Religious Denominational
Category Codings

We categorized NSYR teen respondents into major religious types for analysis using a procedure very similar to the RELTRAD method.1 We assigned respondents to religious categories based on information about teen and family religion obtained from a variety of religious attendance and identity variables in the teen and parent surveys. The key variable used was the religious tradition of the congregation the teen most attends, following the coding scheme specified below. Note that teens who say they are not religious may still be categorized into one of the religious categories if they attend religious services at a congregation with an identifiable religious tradition occasionally or more often with their parents; likewise, teens who say they never attend religious services still may be categorized into one of the religious categories if they say that they nevertheless identify with some religious tradition. In 2.2 percent of all teen cases, this religion information from all relevant survey variables was insufficient to make a conclusive categorization; these teens were categorized as indeterminate.
