Abstract

The Appalachian Presbyterians Survey was commissioned by two denominations: the United Presbyterian Church in the United States of America and the Presbyterian Church in the United States. It was conducted by Hart M. Nelsen of the Western Kentucky University's Department of Sociology.

The survey sample consisted of eighteen separate congregations in five Appalachian states—Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. However, data collected in North Carolina is not included in these records.

2.       Consultation with key church leaders to analyze the review of literature (May 1967).

3.       Preparation of the research design (Jun 1967).

4.       Field interviewing (Jul-Aug 1967).
