ICare data: religious preferences

All --
Here are some data from ICare re: the religious attitudes and behavior of our participants.  I have not looked at this real closely, but I am struck by the large % of men who express strong religious affiliation.  


I am working with Jessica Lapinski on a paper re: christian religion and gay identity in a mostly white sample - it may be interesting to look at religion and well being / health / risk in this group.

Any takers?
