Bet Description

The Native American Church (NAC) is a belief system that entails the sacramental use of the entheogen peyote, an illegal drug in the UK. There are relatively few people in England and Wales who affiliate with this belief and affiliations saw a decline between 2001 and 2011. Will there be a resurgence in those affiliating with the church that uses Peyote as a sacrament?

Decision Logic 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 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.
