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:
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.
