FURTHER INFORMATION:

Most of the field names in the GLAMA database are self-explanatory, but a few of them need further definition:

  • TRADITION = Used to describe the MAJOR RELIGIOUS TRADITION of each religious group; see the PROLADES CLASSIFICATION document that is available in ENGLISH or SPANISH, which is formatted for viewing in the Adobe Acrobat Reader (.pdf).
  • CLASCODE = Used to sort the database by RELIGIOUS CLASSIFICATION CODES assigned by PROLADES; each DENOMINATION has its own CLASCODE (alpha-numerical) to facilitate the sorting of groups within the various FAMILIES of denominations and MAJOR TRADITIONS; see the CLASSIFICATION CODE document that is available in ENGLISH or SPANISH, which is formatted for viewing in the Adobe Acrobat Reader (.pdf).
  • DENCODE = An acronym used to identify the denominational affiliation of each particular religious group; for example, SBC = Southern Baptist Convention; for a listing of all the denominational names and clascodes used in this database see the CLASSIFICATION CODE document described above.
  • ETHCODE = Used to identify the major ETHNIC GROUP (based on ethnic self-identification, language used, country of origin, etc.) served by this religious group; a listing of all the ethnic codes used in this database are available at: www.prolades.com/glama/ethnics.pdf
