Description
Summary:Religious practices of black and white adolescents in a southern community were measured between 1964 and 1974 by the variables frequency of church attendance, frequency of Bible reading, and grace at meals. Questionnaires were administered to 367 adolescents in 1964 and 432 in 1974. Analysis of variance was used in analyzing the data. Adolescent religious involvement was found to be declining. The decline is especially great for males according to data analyzed here. It was also found that differences in religious practices were greater for sex than race in church attendance and Bible reading but greater for race in the saying of grace at meals.
