Abstract

The modern landmark for the Economics of Religion is the model proposed by Azzi and Ehrenberg in 1975 to religious frequency. This model has several empirical studies in the literature in order to test their hypotheses. In this article, we test the hypothesis of the model of Azzi and Ehrenberg applying an ordered logistic regression with survey data of the Brazilian Social Research (PESB) 2004 on religious attendance. According to our results, women tend to attend more religious services; religious frequency showed an increase with age and negatively correlated with income
