Interviewed urban, Black respondents (N=122), aged 51 to 90, about their religious practices and beliefs. Results were analyzed using a multidimensional scale. Religiosity did not appear to vary with age but church membership did. Women had higher scores than men. Religiosity was positively related to life satisfaction. (Author)
