The Economics of Religious Participation: A Cross-Country Study
Levels of participation in organized religion differ markedly across countries, a stylized fact which has resisted a general theoretical explanation. The claim of this paper is that the international variation in religious attendance can be understood in terms of systematic differences in socioeconomic variables. In particular, national religious participation is modeled as a function of investment in religious human capital, social interactions, and religious market structure. Using data for eighteen countries derived from the religious questionnaire of the International Social Survey Programme, the empirical significance of these variables is demonstrated by estimating simple regression equations.
