Australian Cultural Diversity: Religion

'Religion across the generations' is explored in the new release: A Picture of the Nation: the Statistician's Report on the 2006 Census, 2006 (cat. no. 2070.0). This article examines the religious profile of each generation in Australia and discusses the differences between, as well as within, 5 generation groups.

A Picture of the Nation provides a detailed insight into contemporary Australian society and the factors affecting the lives of Australian people. One of the key themes in the report are the trends taking place in relation to cultural diversity. The report highlights some of the interesting findings in this area and provides an overview of how the 2006 Census measured cultural background.

The Migrant and Ethnicity theme page provides more information about the statistics produced relating to the characteristics of migrants, their descendants and their communities.
