2001 Census Appendix 30

Religion
Current religion (RELPUK)

These questions ask the person to record their religion. In Scotland there is a separate question asking for the religion the person was brought up in. In Northern Ireland, people who do not regard themselves as belonging to any religion are asked to record the religion they were brought up in. A write-in is provided where the persons religion is not provided as a tick box response. Although the questions differ between England and Wales and Northern Ireland the same detailed codes are used to code the write-in responses. The full list of codes will be available for commissioned output. Write-in answers are not coded in Scotland.

Missing answers will not be imputed so the classifications include a 'not stated' category.

The most detailed classifications used in standard output are:
