Pittsburgh, United States
Pittsburgh is the only study site where will not be working within a Health and Demographic Surveillance System (HDSS). Rather, the Survey Research Center of Pennsylvania State University (PSU) will implement our study, overseeing recruitment and data collection. We will work closely with PSU Professor Miranda Kaye and SRC Director Diana Crom to make the data collection process as similar as possible to that in the HDSS sites. Even so, we anticipate several differences such as the inclusion of non-religious people and women who do not have children in the study.
The city is majority Christian (78%) with a minority of residents who are religiously unaffiliated (18%) or other religions (4%). In our study we will work specifically with people who identify as Christian, Jewish, or religiously unaffiliated.
