UNHEALTHY HERETICL HOSERS? THE HEALTH OF CANADIAN ATHEISTS FROM THE 2015 GENERAL SOCIAL SURVEY

RESEARCHERS:

David Speed, PhD

Research addressing religion and health has concluded that religion and spirituality exude salutary effects. As a consequence, atheism and nonreligion are assumed to be associated with poorer health outcomes. However, much of this literature has neglected to actually study these groups. This project uses the Canadian General Social Survey to examine the largest sample of atheists ever reported, in order to determine whether there is a meaningful health penalty for nonbelief.
