The Global Flourishing Study (GFS) is a collaboration between scholars at Harvard University and Baylor University, in partnership with the Gallup Organization and the Center for Open Science. The GFS will consist of 300,000 participants from 22 geographically and culturally diverse countries, nationally representative within each country, with data collection on the same panel of individuals annually for five waves of data. The GFS will include a rich set of measures on well-being and health, religion and spirituality, and social, demographic, economic, political, and psychological variables. Many prior analyses rely upon cross-sectional samples from the United States and Europe, and the empirical study of “religion” has often been limited to Christianity. Longitudinal data are more limited on the effects of religion on well-being around the world and among the major non-Christian religions. We propose to close this knowledge gap by examining the determinants of well-being and the effects of religion in a global probability-based panel study includes people of all major faith traditions and none. The GFS will furthermore expand knowledge on the extent to which, and in what ways, many of the world’s largest nations are, or are not, flourishing, as well as why. Its longitudinal panel nature and large sample size will allow for the application of a rigorous methodology to examine the causes of flourishing. Data will be made publicly accessible via the Open Science Framework in a branded registry, providing an important new resource for researchers, journalists, policymakers, and educators around the world.
