Options: Potential for UROP Funding

I am seeking a researcher to assist me with a research project called “Finding Faith Today.” The project is a nationwide study that surveys and interviews adults aged 18 and over who, since January 1, 2011, have made a new declaration of faith or otherwise signaled that they have adopted a religious faith as their own (or “converted,” or “become a member,” depending on the appropriate language), even if that happens to be a “return” to faith from an earlier commitment in their lives. The study has a comparative interfaith component that will look at those who become adherents of all major religious traditions in the U.S. Research assistants will work with database management, initial and follow-up contacts with research subjects, and some phone interviewing and transcription. Ability to conduct statistical analysis is helpful.
