Description

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/.

Despite the ‘The Second Coming’ the the numbers of people affiliating with Christianity are on the decline. But those affiliating with Islam and with Buddhism are on the up. This bet pits the deities of those two religions against each other.  Will there be a greater increase in the number of people affiliating with Allah (Muslim) or with the Buddha (Buddhism) in the 2021 census?

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 recorded as affiliating with the Muslim (Islam) faith and with Buddhism will be counted.
