Where the heathens are


Just a quick post, in relation to this thread on Public Address about religion and religious tolerance: 2006 Census data showing the proportion of people in each Wellington meshblock who answered "no religion":

There's no time for a proper legend, but:
  • bright blue shows places where no-one put "no religion";
  • bright red would show where everyone put "no religion" (actually, the highest in the whole country was 91%);
  • shades of purple are in between.
There's a world of interesting patterns here, but I'll have to dig further.

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Tom to be really interesting you'd probably want to take it further north at least as far as Otaki. You're really only showing the Godless humanist suburbs, and not the ones with the clusters of particular faiths.
