In the 2021 Census of England and Wales, one or more new ‘parody’ religions will ‘place’, i.e. have their number separately reported, in the same way as ‘Jedi Kinghts’ and ‘Heavy Metal’ have made it into previous census counts. This bet is on which parody religion (Pastafarianism, Invisible Pink Unicorn, Dudeism or Matrixism) will be separately reported in the 2021 census?

Decision Logic

Betfair-Metaphysical.com lets you make money from gambling on religious beliefs using the the 2021 population Census for England and Wales (E&W).  All bets relate to the ‘What is Your Religion?’ question on the census. A census happens every ten years and Census Day 2021 is Sunday March 21, 2021. The Census is run by the Office for National Statistics and is administered to 20 million households. Betfair Metaphysical allows you to wager on the outcomes. More details can be found at https://census.gov.uk/. See the explainer video tutorials for more information on metaphysical gambling.

This bet will be resolved upon publication by the Office for National Statistics of the detailed characteristics for the Religion question. Such as in the equivalent table for the  2011 Religious Populations 2011, Main Religions. Arbitration will be provided by the University of Manchester hosted British Religion in Numbers (BRIN) research programme.  BRIN is part of the British Academy, and has been providing cutting edge research into religion and society since 2008.

Only the specific names Pastafarianism, Invisible Pink Unicorn, Dudeism or Matrixism will count in this bet.
