THIS YEAR'S CENSUS will have 'no religion' as the first option for the question related to religious affiliation. In the lead up to the National Census to be held on Tuesday 9 August 2016, it is important for those who regularly attend organised religious worship, or who simply believe but attend irregularly, to think carefully about how they respond to the question, as non-engagement with the question potentially has broader impact than might be first considered.
