- Given the low numbers actually attending church, it is perhaps surprising that
so few claimed they had no religion.
Should we conclude from the geographical pattern that the Scots were more godless,
or just more honest?
Given the small numbers in non-Christian religions, the pattern for 'no religion' was largely
a mirror image of the pattern for Christians, with lower numbers in the north than the south
of England and, perhaps surprisingly, lower numbers in the cities than in rural areas.
For what it is worth, the district in Britain with the most non-believers was Aberdeen (42%),
and the top seventeen were all in Scotland.
The highest rates in England and Wales were Norwich (28%), Brighton and Hove, and
Cambridge (both 27%); these are all university towns.
