    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".

    And here it is in percentages, for that category.
