Church and Synagogue Affiliation: Theory, Research, and Practice

By Amy L. Sales; Gary A. Tobin | Go to book overview

Indeed, as national religious dollars become tighter this "research and development" function of denominations should grow in importance.


NOTES
1.
The Think Tank on Congregational Affiliation ( Brandeis University, October 1992) reinforced for me the importance of being clear and consistent in the use of concepts. I will use "affiliates" and "adherents" interchangeably to refer to persons who identify with a particular religious group, though they need not be "members" of any religious organization. Affiliation may mean nothing more than having a response to the question: "What is your religious preference? Is it Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, some other religion, or no religion?" (the question used by the National Opinion Research Center in the General Social Survey).
2.
For definition of these groups, see Roof and McKinney ( 1987), American Mainline Religion, Appendix. While the focus in this paper is on only these three groups, the analysis included all groups in the General Social Surveys.
