We elicit data on individual religiosity using a survey, and on trust and trustworthiness using a standard trust game. We do not find conclusive evidence to support that religiosity predicts trust, but we find that more religious people are more likely to exhibit greater trustworthiness. While our analysis is not causal in nature, we summarize existing causal literature that examines the link between religiosity and trust in the South-Asian context, and collate some interesting findings.
