Evolution des valeurs et croyances religieuses chez les étudiants

On the other hand, a survey carried out on University students by Fundaciòn BBVA between the end of 2004 and January 2005, reveals a low level of religiosity among them (average of 3.3 out of 10, using multivariate criteria). Of the 3000 students who participated in the study, those who say that they are "not in anyway religious" (nada religiosos) are as high as 52.4%.
The data gathered shows an increasing detachment from the Roman Catholic doctrine and influence of the Church’s authorities. The Roman Catholic Church is the least trusted institution among the students. A large consensus appears in their opinions on current issues affecting society. 8.8 out of 10 students interviewed support the idea of unmarried couples living together, 8.4 support the use of human artificial reproduction methods, 7.9 are in favour of same-sex marriage, 7.8 support single parenthood, 7.5 euthanasia, 7 abortion and 6.8 back adoption by homosexual couples.Finally, the lowest level of religiosity is found among students in the social and experimental sciences.
