Pennsylvania State University (University Park, PA 16802-1503)
Wilbur Zelinsky (Project Director: September 2001 to September 2006)
The Place of Religion in the American Metropolis

To support the creation of a data set on the approximately approximately 4,700 houses of worship in the greater Chicago area (CookCounty, Illinois), and the writing of a booklength monograph.

We wish to describe, explore, and interpret the role of whatever is tangibly sacred, the "churchscape," in an especially representative American metropolis -- just how the location and characteristics of Greater Chicago's varied houses of worship and their congregations matter in its general life and social geography.
