church serviceGreat Britain’s 2011 census shows that the number of people calling themselves Christian has gone down noticeably. The 2001 census had 37 million Christians while the 2011 census had 33 million Christians. Those who are unaffiliated with any religion rose from 10% to 25%.

The bottom line is that only 59% of Britain’s population is now Christian which is still a good majority, but that’s a decline from 75% of the population in 2001. And less than half of their population (46.6%) is married, which is a decrease from 50.9% in the last census.
