Social Networks and Parental Behavior in the Intergenerational Transmission of Religion Eleonora Patacchini and Yves Zenou


We analyze the intergenerational transmission of the strength of religion focusing on the interplay between family and social influences. We find that parental investment in transmitting religious values and peers' religiousity are complements. The relative importance of these socialization factors depends on the religiosity of the parents.
