Abstract of our working paper on chaplaincy demand

This report outlines the key findings of a survey conducted online March 2-23, 2022, among 1,096 adults with access to the internet. The margin of error for the full sample is plus or minus 3.29 percentage points. The primary goals of the survey included learning how many people have interacted with a chaplain in recent years and, among those who have, what their experience with the chaplain was like

The Lab has now published the findings of that survey, available here (PDF)A webinar launching this report was held on September 21, 2022; it can be viewed in full here or below.

We thank the Templeton Religion Trust for its support of this work.
