Abstract

Analysis of the responses of a combined sample of 3,083 residents of a large metropolis was made to investigate the relationship between migrant status and church attendance. Church attendance rates for various types of migrants (urban and rural) were compared to each other and to those of the natives controlling for age, length of residence, region of origin, religion, sex, and socioeconomic status. A consistent pattern of migrants differentials was found among migrants of recent residence. Such findings were interpreted as being related to the importance of the urban church as an integrating mechanism so that the groups best equipped and most in need of such a mechanism will show the highest rates of attendance.
