British Religion in Numbers Report

YouGov-Cambridge carried out a survey earlier this year which has been published by British Religion in Numbers. The group surveyed were 'representative British adults'. 55% said they were Christian though there was a marked difference between age groups. 38% of the 18-34 year olds said they were Christian while 53% were 'not religious'. Contrast this with the over 55 age group of whom 70% said they were Christian and 26% reported that they were 'not religious'. The survey shows a slow decline in affiliation to all the major religions but, interestingly, the older age group were more nominal, and the younger age group more actively involved in their allegiance to their religion if you go on factors such the percentages reporting that they pray at least once a month.
