In order to explore the complex nature of religion among Latinos, the Pew Hispanic Center and the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life collaborated on a set of public opinion surveys.

Between January 5, 2007 and January 29, 2007, 650 of the Catholic respondents from the Primary Survey were recontacted.  This Recontact Survey produced a sample representative of the 2,025 Catholic respondents first interviewed in the Primary Survey, with a margin of error of 5.7%.
