A central technical problem in any historical sociological study of secularization has been the availability of quantifiable data of a kind at least somewhat comparable to those gathered by survey researchers. An effort is made here to determine the internal and external validity of the laity/clergy ratio as an indicator of secularization. The empirical focus is upon the Norwegian clergy between 1800 and 1950.
