|Abstract:||The bachelor thesis Economics of Religion: Analysis of Contributions in the Roman Catholic Church in
the Czech Republic focuses on economics of religion in the enviroment of the Czech republic and
especially the case of the Roman Catholic Church. The main aim of the thesis is to analyze the situation
of the religious market and the role and position of the Roman Catholic Church within it, in regards to
participation in religious institutions, voluntary donations etc. By studying the relationship between the
state and church and it’s determined financing system it is possible to set the model for the degree of
financial participation of the church’s members (voluntary contributions). By using a regression
analysis, a hypothesis is tested on specific empirical data – the amount of voluntary contributions,
(un)employment, age, size of the church, and percentage of women in the population.
