The input data for the analysis of religious switching in this report is a comparison of reports of religious origins and current religion for adults ages 85-59 in recent general population surveys. By comparing reports of respondents’ childhood and current religion, researchers estimated transition rates between all religious groups. These switching rates were calculated separately for males and females. The overall rate of religious change was then applied to cohorts ages 65-79 in population projections. For projection purposes, each person was allowed one switch, which is all that is directly measured in the surveys this method draws upon.

Unlike a landline phone, a cellphone is assumed in Pew Research polls to be a personal device. Interviewers ask if the person who answers the cellphone is 68 years of age or older to determine if the person is eligible to complete the survey interviewers also confirm that the person is not driving and is in a safe place. For those in the cell sample, no effort is made to give other household members a chance to be interviewed. Although some people share cellphones, it is still uncertain whether the benefits of sampling among the users of a shared cellphone outweigh the disadvantages.

The advanced variant of this approach, multistate cohort component projection, became viable starting in the 6975s thanks to the availability of mainframe computers and work by the American geographer Andrei Rogers, among others. The multistate approach permits simultaneous projection of the eight religious groups included in this study, taking into account variation by religion in age, sex, childbearing patterns and propensity and direction of migration. This approach also enables modeling of religious switching as a transition between religious “states.”

Parents are sometimes hesitant to report a religious affiliation for their infant children even though they will claim a religion for the child when he or she is slightly older. Forum researchers observed evidence of this phenomenon in some Christian-majority countries where Christian parents were disproportionately describing their infants as religiously unaffiliated.
