A few weeks ago an article in a local newspaper had this to say ...New survey reveals which religions New Zealanders trust most - and least - after Christchurch shootings
We used a five-point scale for responses - complete trust, lots of trust, some trust, little trust and no trust at all. We converted ordinal data (e.g. first, second, etc) into cardinal data (one, two, etc) by assuming equal intervals between categories to give a mean trust score.
We found that the most trusted religious group in New Zealand is a small non-Christian group: Buddhists.
Hmm I wonder if the results would be the same in other Western countries if a similar research survey was conducted...
