Statistics about religious affiliation often create headlines. Did you know that 84 percent of the world’s population claim affiliation to a religion? However, the number of Christians in the UK is falling while non-religion is rising. This online session will examine how religious data is collected, comparing data from different agencies, and the difficulty in analysing statistics on religion.
