Why you should mark ‘No religion’ in the census.

Ireland’s next census is on Sunday 24th April 2016. The census is an important chance to make sure your interests are met in decision making by government bodies, funding and reflect the changing face of Ireland in the 21st century.

We ask you consider seriously the question, ‘What is your religion?’ In response mark the box that reflects how you see yourself now. If you do not have a religion or you do not practise one even if you once did, then mark the ‘No Religion’ box. Answering this way will assure that your current status is reflected in how Ireland has changed for the better.

The HAI appreciates that some people may want to identify themselves as Atheist, Agnostic or Humanist or even leave the question unanswered. Marking ‘No religion’ is better because in doing so your count is added with others to show the true number of those with no religion
