Singapore has one of the highest Internet penetration rates in the world (60.2%) and 85% of Singaporeans claim to have a religious affiliation to one of the main religious traditions within the country, including Buddhism, Taoism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, or traditional Chinese religions. International surveys have shown the use of the Internet for religious purposes is growing significantly, and that in the future, the Internet could be a primary source for religious information for users around the world. The main aim of this project was to investigate and better understand how Singaporeans used the Internet for religious purposes. A national survey with 711 respondents was conducted from 21st to 26th of November 2004 to measure the extent to which Singaporeans used the Internet in a religious context, their perceptions of the religious impact of the Internet and the most common online religiously oriented online activities among Singaporeans.
