Default Re: Media Release: Non-believers by far Australia’s largest single ‘religious’ group

Has anyone been able to find the breakdown of 'No Religion'? I would like to know what percentage of 'No Religion' was atheist, humanist, new age...

Cheers,
Spud.

Of the 30.1% stated at http://abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/...features252016, I believe 29.6% specifically marked the No religion box. The remainder was split between Secular Beliefs and Other Spirtual Beliefs. See http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@....Chapter8302016 for the Religious Affiliation classifications.

When I have some spare time I'll see if I can dig out more details on the latter two categories.

Here's the raw numbers, via the Census Table Builder:

"nfd" stands for "not further defined".
"nec" stands for "not elsewhere classified".
