150 Northern Irish University undergraduate students completed the Francis Scale of Attitude towards Christianity, the Satisfaction with Life Scale, and a single-item measure of frequency of church attendance. No significant association was found between scores on the Francis Scale of Attitude towards Christianity and scores on the Satisfaction with Life Scale (r=.05) or between frequency of church attendance and scores on the Satisfaction with Life Scale (r=.00). These data provide no evidence that, among a sample of Northern Irish University undergraduate students, those with a more positive attitude towards Christianity or a greater frequency of church attendance are more satisfied with life.
