    Post Statistics from my local neighbourhood

    I don't know whether you guys have an equivalent thing, but over here we have the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

    The ONS produce data on a variety of subjects, including statistics from the 10-yearly census we are required by law to answer.

    The 2001 census was the first one to include a question regarding religion. That year, 390,000 people gave their religion as "Jedi Knight", making it the fourth-largest reported religion in the country.

    I think they changed the question for the 2011 census Here are some statistics from my little corner of England from 2011.

    NB the population of Wycombe as a whole is ~120,000.

    I find it VERY interesting that here in America (I'm assuming this is from your neighborhood PapaB), they have the different types of Christian affiliations broken down, and in the UK they have all the "other" religions broken down, and the Christian all grouped together.

    Yep, it's from my city/town

    I was surprised at how detailed the information went.

    If any of you want to find yours; just search, city data, and the name of your town and state.

    I just noticed the same thing, Lista!

    It is interesting... I'm surprised that "None" is so high in both places for you guys. Interesting stuff, Papabrett. :)

You can forget about unexpected repair costs with an extended service contract for your Saab. Many vehicle repairs can cost thousands of dollars in unexpected expense, now may be the time to consider an extended service plan for your vehicle.
