Great map!

I thought the UK was plurality Catholic now? (Speaking of the UK, why did you only divide them up by the Home Countries- I would have at least used the regional level)

England is nowhere near being plurality Catholic (not that the Census records this information) The most reliable indicator of denominationalism is the British Social Attitudes Survey which in 2013 suggested Britain as a whole was plurality Non-Religious (48%) Anglicans account for 20% and Catholics for 9%. Certainly at current trends Anglican might end up at 15% or so with Catholicism at around 10% (adherence to Catholicism, suggesting a cultural rather than religious association has flatlined since the survey began in 1983) with the Non-Religious breaking 55-60% (Nones are already at 60% amongst the under 30ís and about 42% in the formal Census) but England will not be plurality Catholic any time soon.

Very detailed. One of the most informative maps posted on the forum Smiley

Just a few points on my home turf. If you are calculating 'No Religion' for Scotland then census guidance suggests that should include those who not only actively declare 'No Religion' on their Census box, but also don't fill it in ('Religion not stated') as faith is a declaration yadda yadda. That boosts the grey somewhat.
