Sacred / Profane Research: Data Points

I've adjusted the demographic data points for the new version of the survey.

  • Age
  • Sex
  • Highest Educational Level Attained
  • What University the student attends (if any)
  • What year the subject is in their education (if applies)
  • Military Service (if any)
  • Religious Affiliation
  • Religious Service Attendance
  • Marital Status
  • Home County
  • Home State
  • Frequency of Internet Access
  • Location of Internet Access
  • Socio-Economic Status
  • Race
  • First Generation College Student

  • The question about what university the subject attends is mostly a point that I will use to help cluster the respondents for any extra credit the subject might receive within their class but also to look for any correlation on shared values within the same social community (University).  The question of the subject's year in education (if applicable) is also an attempt to see if there is any correlation on the change in values (towards the symbolic nature of the Sacred or Profane) during their time at the University.
