Extending RelTrad

The current version of RelTrad joins together denominations and religious traditions that are typically so small in number in a single crossectional dataset that renders findings unusable (the recommended minimum is 40 respondents for bivariate analyses; multiply that figure by the number of independent variables used in multivariate analyses for more rigorous tests). However, pooling of datasets may yield large enough subsamples of specific groups that may warrant disaggregation. Below are a few examples of RelTrad recodings for specific groups. Please contact us if you have recommended syntax for other groups not currently listed:

Historically Black Churches & Denominations: Black RelTrad
