Religiosity, Secularism, And Social Health: A Research Note, Thomas S. Mach, Gerson Moreno-Riano, Mark Caleb Smith

Mark Caleb Smith, Ph.D.

This article is a research note addressing various theoretical and methodological issues in the measurement and analysis of religiosity and secularism and their relationship to quantifiable measures of social health in advanced and prosperous democracies. Particular attention is given to cross-national frameworks for studying religiosity and secularism as well as to the conceptualization and statistical analysis of these notions for research design. Various procedural suggestions regarding the use of comparative frameworks are presented to assist in the development and implementation of future studies gauging the impact of worldview commitments upon societal wellbeing.

William B. Krohn

This is an expanded version, with color illustrations, of Krohn’s Stanley article published by the Dixfield Historical Society in 2012. This updated article is followed by an article by L. Hirsch that documents the discovery of Henry O. Stanley’s personal fishing tackle. Stanley’s tackle, more than 100 years after his death, was still relatively intact. Originals of Krohn’s expanded article, along with Hirsch’s article, are on file in Special Collections, Raymond H. Fogler Library, University of Maine.
