Christiansen, John R.; And Others
Rural Sociology, v28 n2 p176-85 June 1963
This paper, presented at the annual meeting of the Rural Sociological Society at Iowa State University, August, 1961, describes a study of the relation of Morman religious values and the desire to attend college. Interviews were held with 287 high school age boys and girls living in three central Utah counties which had a high concentration (91%) of Morman Church membership. Analyses of the data indicated that there was a statistically significant association between church activity and the desire to attend college. In addition, 21 other variables were found to be associated with desire to attend college. (SF)
