This paper gives details of a survey undertaken in Dundee (Scotland) in 1986 among 6,653 secondary school pupils, aged 11 to 16 years, from non-denominational, denominational and independent schools. The Francis Attitude Scale ASC 4B was used in connection with the attitude to religion items. The main aim of the research was to discover what are the most salient factors or group of factors involved in the formation and continuation of young people's attitudes to Christianity within a secular, science-orientated society. The study focuses upon parental encouragement, personal Church attendance and peer group practice as the major determining factors and seeks to explore the impact of young people's attitudes to science, and in particular their creationist and scientistic beliefs, upon their attitudes to Christianity.
