Bet Description

Betfair-Metaphysical.com lets you play the 2021 Census in 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. More details can be found at https://census.gov.uk/.

A variety of beliefs could be ascribed to the category ‘Spiritual’ including ‘New Age’, Mysticism etc. However, this bet pits those who specifically describe themselves as Spiritual against those who believe in Spiritualism – i.e. ghosts.

Decision Logic

This bet will be resolved upon publication by the Office for National Statistics or the British Religion in Numbers Department of the University of Manchester, of analysis which shows a comparison between these affiliations on a comparable basis such as the BRIN paper:

Religious Census 2011 – What happened to the Christians? (Part II) | British Religion in Numbers

In the event of any dispute or non-publication, Betfiar-Metaphysical will seek clarification from BRIN.

For the purposes of this bet the only those in the categories ‘Spiritual’ and ‘Spiritualism’ will be counted. The closely related beliefs of ‘New Age’ and ‘Ancestor Worship’ etc. will be ignored.
