In a previous study, Singh (79) found religious affiliation to be an insignificant variable for the prediction of euthanasia & suicide attitudes. In the present study, reanalysis of this same data indicated that religious affiliation, coded as a discrete variable, Catholic vs non-Catholic, was masking existing differences among religious denominations. It is concluded that future efforts to predict euthanasia & suicide attitudes should include religious affiliation as a dummy variable.
