Frequently Asked Questions

Why can’t I find my city? / How are cities defined?
Cities are defined by local television signals or reach and will typically include a major city’s suburbs and surrounding commuter towns. When subscribing to an individual city for access to FaithView, think about which local television stations are available in your community—then search for that city in the drop-down menu.

Our database is still growing! Each year we will add thousands of new interviews to FaithView. However, we don’t yet have enough data to provide analysis on all US cities. Currently we offer access to over 200 US cities.

What region am I in? / How are regions defined?
Regions are defined by state. The 50 states plus DC are divided into 9 divisions based on US Census data. To find your region visit our Glossary page for more information on how regions are defined.
