At the Századvég Foundation, we have asked questions about religiosity in our major research projects, regardless of the topics. The reason for this is that in many questions about values or attitudes, respondents’ religiosity is even more significant as an explanatory factor than other socioeconomic variables. Recognizing this, we have already attempted to capture religiosity along several dimensions through our research on domestic religiosity. This paper focuses on summarizing these, and also presents the Foundation’s religiosity cluster, which it began developing in 2017, and the key findings on the variables used to develop it. Finally, based on our research experience, I propose the use of an additional religiosity measurement variable developed by our research team for cases where the scope of the questionnaire only allows for one question on religiosity.

Keywords: religiosity, irreligiosity, hungary, measurement, religious practice
