  • By comparison, 46.9 percent of the total European ethnic group and 41.9 percent of the total New Zealand population said they had no religion.

 

Note: 'Object to answering' is a response option for the religion question and so the calculation of percentages includes those responses.

Religious affiliation includes all people who stated each religious affiliation, whether as their only religious affiliation or as one of several. Where a person reported more than one religious affiliation, they were counted in each applicable group.

This data has been randomly rounded to protect confidentiality. Individual figures may not add up to totals, and values for the same data may vary in text, tables, and graphs. The accuracy of percentages may be affected by this rounding, particularly for ethnic groups with small populations.
