    Default Have the CSO removed the religion question from the Census for 2011

    Census 2011 Consultation

    The current pilot form does not contain any question on religion. Is this likely to remain the case for the real thing in 2011?

    Have the CSO, after the consultation phase, decided that the wording of the religion question is simply too controversial to be included in the Census anymore?

    I have sent them an e-mail asking why.

    Will report back.

    one assumes so... weird given the necessity for provision of services to the health and education system. Theres no religious Q on the 2009 forms. http://www.politics.ie/chat/59706-pi...us-2009-a.html

    I reckon they felt they were damned whatever they did. And threw their collective hat at it.

    I'm provisionally not impressed, but will reserve my more paranoid impulses for whenever more information emerges.

    the data should be collated by now, the pilot census was limited to a set of 4/5 areas in each region. Mine was collected sharpish. l alluded to the lack of religion question and the woman only question in the attached comment form.

    It wasn't asked on the 2006 pilot form either as far as I could see.

    It was asked on the 2006 form - question 13.
    The pilot survey is only asking 15 of the original questions plus 3 new ones.
    Details here: CSO - Census: Census FAQ

    No specific question on paranoia but 15(d) might cover it?

    Q25 vaguely mentions volunteerism; but to my mind there was no direct question on religious practice in the 2009 WIP from the CSO.

    i do hope not, as a member of a minority religion i do find it interesting to watch the ebb and flow of our numbers this being the most accurate and impartial record that i know of
