Religion as it pertains to subjective well-being is a topic of debate as religion operationalized can undertake many forms. However, research has shown that religion is a form of social interaction and an inclusionary social institution. It is also noted in previous subjective well-being research that social support has a positive correlation with the condition of subjects. Thus, the facet of religion that could be the best measure in regard to subjective well-being is social support provided by religious institutions. In the interest of finding a better measure for religion, the use of a comprehensive survey asked respondents to report their degree of religious importance, social support as provided by a religious affiliation, social support in a general manner, and their subjective well-being. This present study was in search of the possible correlation of social support and religious social support as it pertains to subjective well-being.
