Buddhist Health Survey

Take part in an interesting Buddhist Health Survey put together by The Northern University of Arizona in the United States of America. CLICK HERE. UPDATE: This survey takes about 45 minutes.

For more information regarding this survey read below:

Buddhism is a growing religion and practice in the United States and despite the growing number of individuals practicing basic elements of Buddhism, surprisingly little is known about the individuals who practice Buddhism. This survey assesses a number of important aspects of everyday life, including questions about your Buddhist beliefs and practices, lifestyle behaviors, and your thoughts and feelings about yourself and others.

During the survey you will be presented with instructions for each section of the survey and a series of yes/no questions, multiple choice questions and brief open-ended response questions. The first section of the survey will ask questions about your participation in Buddhist religious activities and understanding of Buddhist teachings; the second section consists of questions about your health, medical history and health practices; the third section, questions about psychological characteristics and the final section consists of demographic questions. The survey will take, on average, about 45 minutes to complete and must all be completed in one session.

You will be provided with an indicator of your progress toward completion as you take the survey.
The survey is anonymous. No information will be collected by which you could be identified. The responses to the survey will be maintained in an electronic database and only aggregated responses will be analyzed. Your participation in the survey is entirely voluntary and you may refuse to participate or stop taking the survey at any time without prejudice or penalty. This study is sponsored by Northern Arizona University. If you have any questions about the survey you may contact the prinicipal investigator with an e-mail at

By clicking on "I consent" you indicate your consent to participate in the survey. When you click "I consent" you will be presented with the survey.
Thank you for considering participation in this survey. At the end of the survey you will be given an opportunity to request results of the survey when they become available. You will also be given the opportunity to indicate your interest in participating in any future studies on Buddhism and health we might conduct.
