religiosity and attitudes

Religion has been implicated in the formation and maintenance of social capital and civic participation. In this case, I am interested in an individual’s religiosity, which I define as the “real” influence of religious ideas, beliefs, and attitudes into one’s day-to-day, secular, life. A “highly religious” individual, then, is one for whom his or her everyday attitudes and behaviors are influenced by “things religious.”
