RELTRAD syntax coding

Reltrad is a classification typology for religious tradition. It was first proposed by Steensland et al (2000).

Previous iterations of this code available online have had syntax flaws that have led to undercounting evangelicals. This has been described in a research report, "Reltrad Coding Problems and a New Repository" which was published in the journal of Politics and Religion. A link to that article is here

This repository contains three folders:

1. A folder for the Cooperative Congressional Election Study Code (contains R code only)

2. A folder for the General Social Survey (contains both Stata and R code)

Inside the GSS folder is a syntax file called new_reltrad.R. This creates the new eight category typology that was established by Burge and Djupe in Falling Through the Cracks.

3. A folder for the National Election Study cumulative (contains Stata code only)

RELTRAD in the GSS

There was a small update to this code published on 2/11/2022 after some errors were noticed in the code for the Cooperative Election Study.
