Abstract

Este documento explora el comportamiento religioso de los habitantes de la ciudad de Bucaramanga desde la perspectiva analítica conocida como economía de la religión. Considerando la práctica religiosa como una elección racional de los individuos, se analizan las creencias, el nivel de oración y la frecuencia de asistencia al templo. Los resultados empíricos permiten concluir que: (i) la edad y la compatibilidad religiosa entre cónyuges son determinantes positivos de la asistencia a la iglesia y la oración y (ii) la educación y el ingreso se constituyen como factores que inciden negativamente en la intensidad de las prácticas religiosas.
