The NZ Census data was released today, and the religious affiliation data makes sobering reading.
As expected, the number and proportion of people with no religion has overtaken the number and proportion of Christians. Massively.
Just 36.99% of New Zealanders state an affiliation with a Christian religion.
48.19% state that they have no religious affiliation.
A quirky 6.66% objected to state.
Maori religions 1.33%
New age etc 0.42%
I’ve started to do some comparative work with previous years’ data, plus denominational breakdowns (and match ups).
