While there is evidence to suggest that education is positively related
to religious activity, it is possible that education may be endogenous. We
re-examine this relationship using the cumulative US General Social Survey
(GSS) data file. While we observe a positive correlation between education
and attendance at religious services, we find no evidence to support a
causal inference. Moreover, while we observe a positive association
between education and religious contributions, the possibility of causal
connection cannot be dismissed.
