The NZ Census asks a question of respondents about Religious Affiliation. Historically, the only response available for non-believers has been "No Religion". NZ Stats have now added several categories in time for the next Census in 2018.
The new categories give many more options:
Among the options available now for people with no religious belief are:
- No Religion
- Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster
I would be happy ticking several of those boxes, including No Religion, Atheism, Humanism and Rationalism. I'd also be tempted to tick the FSM box!
