ONS Religion Submission

FAIR welcomed the inclusion of the questions relating to religion in the 2001 Census and the latest Labour Force Survey, and welcomed the idea of a multi-source report on 'Religion'.

The Office of National Statistics, responsible for the Census, issued a Scoping Note inviting views on whether ‘religion’ should be treated in a separate report or whether it should be combined with the report on ‘ethnicity and identity’.

We took the opportunity to respond to the Scoping Note on this multi-source report on 'Religion' circulated by the Office of National Statistics (ONS).

In our submission FAIR strongly recommended "that whilst considerable liaison must be maintained between the two topic reports in order to ensure that the relationship between them is fully explored, religion be treated in a separate report."
