British Religion in Numbers
British Religion in Numbers is an accessible online religious data resource which enables users to visualise religious data in the UK. With much discussion about the religious diversity of our country, this resource is useful for work, study, general interest, or settling a debate. The data is also important for public decision making. The programme is hosted by the Institute for Social Change at the University of Manchester and funded by the ESRC and Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) under the Religion and Society programme.
