    The survey was commissioned in advance of the taking of the decennial census in England and Wales on 21 March 2021. The sample was divided into two splits, one of which (n = 1027) was asked the census question on religion (‘What is your religion?’) and the other (n = 1011) the British Social Attitudes Survey question on religion (‘Do you regard yourself as belonging to any particular religion? If yes, which?’) Respondents in either split who self-identified as a Christian were asked to give their reasons for doing so, choosing from a pre-set list. All respondents in the first split were also asked about their attendance at religious services before the Covid-19 pandemic and their self-assessed religiosity.
