Multiple Religious Switching: A Research Note

Abstract

The 1988 General Social Survey included a new measure providing information on the number of times people have switched religious preferences and why. Data show that one-third of all religious switchers are multiple switchers who tend to be male, well-educated, and concentrated in the Mountain region more than anywhere else. Marriage, family, and friends are the most-cited reasons given for switching.
