Religion and political involvement--again

To improve my recent analysis of the worldwide relationship between religion and political activism, I looked at the percent who ever participated in a boycott and the percent who ever participated in a demonstration.

To control for education, I limited the analysis to only those with a university degree. The World Values Survey sample was almost 5,000 people from countries all over the world. The table shows the results by religion--religions with fewer than 20 respondents were omitted. Overall, Jews are the most politically active. (Israel did not participate in this survey).
