Joe Blankholm, a professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara along with Juhem Navarro-Rivera, Ph.D., and Dusty Hoesly, Ph.D., are conducting a survey of members of secular communities in the United States.
The group has been researching secular and nontheist people for several years, and they themselves identify as secular.
They have announced a new project called “The Secular Communities Survey.” Find out more here. It will be the largest-ever study of the community life of nonbelievers.
We hope you will participate and that you'll encourage other nontheists you know to also participate.
Please follow this link to access the survey. It’s entirely anonymous and should take about 15-20 minutes to complete.
There is great interest in the community life of secular people. There are about 1,400 local communities for nonbelievers in the United States, and few researchers consider them when thinking about community life.
The survey will also ask about secular political views and degrees of civic engagement.
The research and survey results will be important for scholars of community life in the United States.
Thank you in advance for your participation and your help. The survey designers are happy to answer any questions you may have, so please reach out. You can contact them by emailing secular...@hfa.ucsb.edu
