The Quantitative Survey Results Are In For The "Becoming Lutheran Research Project"

The quantitative survey results are in for the "Becoming Lutheran Major Applied Research Project."

I am thankful to report that the survey had a total of 339 responses.  

From the 340 responses:

- 6 participants were disqualified due to their answer on a screen question.  

- 14 participant surveys were discarded due to the surveys being very incomplete (i.e., only 15-20% complete).

- 13 participant surveys were removed from the final calculations for not meeting the criteria of the study (i.e. from a non-North American continent, not having an evangelical background, etc...)

Thus, the survey contains feedback from 307 participants.  Thanks to everyone who participated!

Assuming a population of 100,000 individuals who have journeyed from American Evangelicalism, 307 participant responses gives this survey the following statistical confidence:
  • A Confidence Level of 95%
  • A Confidence Interval of 5.59%

A special thank you to the following people and organizations for helping me, as well as in some cases letting me use your media venues to obtain research participants:
  • The White Horse Inn
  • Steadfast Lutherans
  • KFUO Radio
  • Paul McCain at Cyberbrethren 
  • Chris Rosebrough from Fighting for the Faith
  • Paula Coyle from Purpose Drivel
  • Bryan Wolfmueller from Table Talk Radio
  • Peter Slayton and Jonathan Fisk from Worldview Everlasting
  • And the many Facebook Friends!
Finally, over the next couple of months I will be analyzing the survey results for patterns and insights.  After the results have been analyzed, I will be developing a more qualitative survey that will consist of interviewing a focus group of individuals in order to glean more specific information.

Thank you for your support and I covet your continual prayers.
