Census 2021



How you can encourage others to mark 'No Religion'

On the 10th of August, a census is being conducted to collect important data on the circumstances and attitudes of the Australian people.

Your friends and family will be asked if they hold religious beliefs, and it’s an important chance for them to think carefully about whether they still do.

When you're talking to them about marking ‘No Religion’ at census time, here are five good reasons you may want to put forward.

  1. Let’s get it right – The Australian Census is only held every five years and it collects important data on our nation. It’s critical that we get it right.
  2. Fairness in public funding – When religious organisations are attributed more support than they actually have, they receive an unfair amount of public funding.
  3. Fairness in voice and influence – Incorrect data also gives religious organisations a stronger voice and more influence than they actually deserve.
  4. Let’s be honest – Australians deserve honest answers about the views we hold towards religion.
  5. Do it for yourself – Marking ‘No Religion’ in this year’s census can be a moment of personal clarity and liberation for yourself.

We’re committed to making sure we get this census right, and we’d love everyone to join our campaign to help to spread the message.


Once you’ve signed up, we’ll provide you with further resources, tools and messages you can use to speak to family and friends, or to show your support through social media.

Also, why not help us further by sharing this email with your friends and family and asking them to sign up?

Thank you so much for your support.
