Chapter Summary

This chapter compares Croatian youth's self-reported religiosity and religious practice at three historical time points (1986, 1999 and 2004). It determines whether and how indicators of religiosity are connected with differences in attitudes towards "marriage and reproduction" and "homosexuality" in three age groups of Croatian youth. The chapter presents and analyses data from the Youth and European integration processes survey carried out by the Institute for Social Research in Zagreb in 2004 with a representative sample of Croatian youth aged 16 to 30. Religious self-identification was assessed on a six level categorical scale which enabled differentiation along a continuum of religiosity and non-religiosity. As an indicator of religious practice, an item probing the frequency of church attendance was used. The results indicate a considerable discrepancy in the responses of Croatian youth at three historical points.

Keywords: Croatian youth; homosexuality; marriage; religious self-identification; reproduction
