The University of Chicago Divinity School’s Martin Marty Center for the Public Understanding of Religion, in partnership with AP-NORC, has just released findings from a poll which explores the impact of the outbreak of the coronavirus on religious beliefs and behaviors and views on the intersection of religion and public life and health. Read more about the findings, data, and methodology.

The Divinity School Surveys conducted with The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research aim to generate information that will inform the public debate and contribute to scholarship in the field of religion by exploring the role of religion in public affairs issues – such as the relationship between religious freedom and public health. 

Led at UChicago by Dean David Nirenberg, the project is a collaboration with Prof. Kraig Beyerlein, a sociologist at the University of Notre Dame, Yale University Dean of the Humanities Kathryn Lofton, and University of Michigan sociologist Prof. Genevieve Zubrzycki.
