Title What the rise of 'no religion' means for Australian laws Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet ABC Religion and Ethics Report Media type Radio Duration/Length/Size 8 min 42 sec Country/Territory Australia Date 29/06/22 Description For the first time in Australia's census history, fewer than half of respondents identified as Christian. 'No religion' has become the second-largest 'religious group', rising from 30.1 per cent in 2016 to 38.9 per cent. The number of people identifying as Hindu and Muslim has also risen, recorded at 2.7 per cent and 3.2 per cent, respectively.
So, what do these figures tell us about Australia's shifting demographics? And how might the rise of 'no religion' play out in our legal system?
