The name of the variable is Religious Affiliation.
The variable Religious Affiliation is defined as the religious beliefs and practices to which a person adheres or the religious group to which a person belongs.
Operationally, Religious Affiliation is self assessed and, therefore, measures the religion to which a person declares they have an affiliation. There is an option for people who do not consider themselves as belonging to any religious group.
Religious Affiliation is self assessed, therefore these data cannot give an objective measure of the strength of a person's affiliation with a religion and is subject to the respondent's interpretation of the question.
