dc.description.abstractThis article examines the relationships between multiple dimensions of religiosity, secular forms of social involvement, demographic covariates, and subjective re-ports of life satisfaction. Nested regression models are used to analyze data from the 1983 NORC General Social Survey. Results indicate that both devotional (private) and participatory (public) aspects of religiosity have relatively small but persistent positive relationships with life satisfaction. Further, affiliation with certain denominations appears positively associated with satisfaction. These asso-ciations are both statistically and theoretically significant. They remain despite ef-forts to control for the effects of both qualitative and quantitative measures of nonreligious social ties. This research indicates that the links between religiosity and psychological well-being in previous studies do not reflect merely the effects of high levels of social participation. Future theoretical and empirical work should consider the relationships between various dimensions of religious involvement and other facets of mental health. The study of the sociologica) implications of religious belief and practice is presently enjoying a resurgence (see Hadden 1987). A vigorous research literature has highlighted the influence of religious commitment on a wide range of social and politica) attitudes and behavior (e.g., Hammond 1985;
