The results of the 2016 national Census today reveal we’re a religiously diverse nation, with Christianity remaining the most common religion (52 per cent of the population). Islam (2.6 per cent) and Buddhism (2.4 per cent) were the next most common religions reported. Nearly a third of Australians (30 per cent) reported in the Census that they had no religion in 2016. Sikhism and Hinduism are the fastest growing religions.

Many Australians inherit a cultural affinity with Christianity. Many of us have attended Christian schools, baptised our kids, been married in church-run ceremonies, or attended church for life's big moments. But cultural heritage is unaccompanied by belief in the tenets of the religion, or by regular participation and membership.

I don't like being forced to choose, because I believe Australians deserve to have both good quality statistical data for government decision-making, and their privacy respected. But on Tuesday night, I will choose privacy.
Names and addresses will be retained, which has raised some privacy concerns.

Australia is constitutionally secular. A true 'No Religion' figure in this census will reaffirm that secular status. Those who framed the constitution were adamant that the nation needed a transparent separation of church and state. But in recent decades, federal parliaments have become increasingly Christianised.
If the election is a national compass that will set something of the policy direction for Australia over the next three years, the census is a map that shows us who we are as a society in a big-picture sense, as well as the contours that highlight our varied local communities and their detailed needs.
