Religious Involvement, Humility, and Self-Rated Health

Publication Abstract

Krause, Neal. 2010. "Religious Involvement, Humility, and Self-Rated Health." Social Indicators Research, 98(1): 23-39.

The purpose of this study is to develop and test a conceptual model that assesses the following theoretical linkages: (1) people who go to church more often tend to receive more spiritual support from fellow church members (i.e., encouragement to adopt religious teachings and principles); (2) individuals who get more frequent spiritual support are more likely to be humble; and (3) people with greater humility tend to rate their health more favorably. The data come from the third wave of a nationwide longitudinal survey of older adults. The data provide support for each of the conceptual linkages identified above.
