The Quantitative Survey Results Have Been Compiled

Posted on January 9, 2013 at 9:05 PM

The results are in for the "Becoming Lutheran Major Applied Project Quantitative Survey!"

I am thankful to report that the survey had a total of 339 responses.  From the 339 responses:

  • 6 participants were disqualified due to their answer on a screen question.  
  • 14 participant surveys were discarded due to the surveys being very incomplete (i.e., only 15-20% complete).
  • 13 participant surveys were removed from the final calculations for not meeting the criteria of the study (i.e. from foreign country, not having an evangelical background, etc...)
Thus, the survey contains feedback from 306 participants.  Thanks to everyone who participated!

Assuming a population of 100,000 individuals who have journeyed from American Evangelicalism, 306 participant responses gives this survey the following statistical confidence:
  • A Confidence Level of 95%
  • A Confidence Interval of 5.59%

A special thank you to the following people and organizations for helping me obtain research participants:


  • Steadfast Lutherans
  • White Horse Inn
  • KFUO Radio
  • Paul McCain at Cyberbrethren
  • Purpose Drivel
  • Chris Rosebrough from Fighting for the Faith
  • And the many Facebook Friends!


Finally, over the next couple of months I will be analyzing the survey results for patterns and insights.  After the results have been analyzed, I will be developing a more qualitative survey that will consist of interviewing a focus group of individuals in order to glean more specific information.

Thank you for your support and I covet your continual prayers.
