The PRRI/AAR 2014 Religion, Values, and Climate Change Survey was conducted by Public Religion Research Institute, in partnership with the American Academy of Religion, to examine attitudes on climate change with regard to religious beliefs. Questions not only assessed views on climate change and religion, but also asked questions about consumption of news media, other environmental issues, and general religiosity and religious values.

Collection Procedures
Data collection is based on stratified, single-stage, random-digit-dialing (RDD) sample of landline telephone households and randomly generated cell phone numbers. The sample is designed to represent the total U.S. adult population and includes respondents from all 50 states, including Hawaii and Alaska. The landline and cell phone samples are provided by Marketing Systems.
Sampling Procedures
Interviews were conducted among a random sample of 3,022 adults 18 years of age or older living in the United States (1,502 respondents were interviewed on a cell phone). The selection of respondents within households was accomplished by randomly requesting to speak with the youngest adult male or female currently living in the household. The sample included a small oversample of Jewish households, which were prescreened for religious affiliation in SSRS's (SQL Server Reporting Services) weekly RDD omnibus survey. A total of 66 Jewish respondents were identified as part of the oversample and included in the study.
