Souls in Transition

Christian Smith (Contributor Webpage)

This chapter draws on National Study of Youth and Religion (NSYR) survey data to provide nationally representative descriptive statistics about the religious and spiritual lives of American emerging adults ages eighteen to twenty-three. It compares these statistics with those of the same youth sample surveyed five years earlier, when they were thirteen to seventeen years old. This has allowed an examination of the distributions and proportions in various religious measures among emerging adults in 2007 and 2008 and how they may have changed over the five-year period representing the transition from the teenage years to the emerging adult years of life.

Keywords:   NSYR, emerging adults, religiousness, spiritual lives, religious practices
