Chapter Summary

This chapter considers the peril and promise of survey research in the field of gender, religion, and politics. It argues that surveys can provide important insights into these topics, but that survey research cannot answer many important questions, and is best used as one of several research tools to fully understand the complexities of religion and politics. The chapter briefly talks about arguments seeking to demonstrate that survey research is inappropriate for the topics of religion and gender, and then considers whether large cross-national surveys such as the World Values surveys work to obscure or reveal. It also considers what more narrowly focused surveys can reveal, and what insights can only be gained through other means. Although some social scientists remain centered in one form of evidence, surveys have an important role in generating and verifying hypotheses, and in helping us to understand religious mobilization and gender.

Keywords: gender politics; global value surveys; religious mobilization
