Age differences in religious participation among black adults

L M Chatters, R J Taylor
Journal of Gerontology 1989, 44 (5): S183-9
Age differences in level of religious participation were examined using data from the National Survey of Black Americans (N = 2107). Seven indicators of organizational, nonorganizational, and attitudinal forms of religious involvement were examined. For women, age was positively associated with each of the religiosity measures; among men, requests for prayer from others was the only indicator for which age was not a significant predictor. The findings are discussed in relation to previous work on age and religious participation.
