Only 38% Brit respondents identify as Christian, far cry from 66% in 1998 survey by National Centre for Social Research

The proportion of Brits who identify as Christian has hit its lowest point in over 3 decades of polling, as more than half of respondents said they no longer affiliate with a religion.

The National Centre for Social Research, which claims to be Britain’s largest independent social research agency, released its 36th annual British Social Attitudes report based on a survey of 3,879 people.

The report confirmed the continued trend seen in the UK and the USA of people not affiliating with any religion as 52% of respondents to the survey said they do not belong to any religion.

“Of these, most were simply not brought up with a religion, with a smaller minority having lost a childhood faith. Those who do not regard themselves as belonging to a religion are increasingly secular, that is, likely to say they are ‘very’ or ‘extremely’ unreligious.”

The study finds that only 38% of the respondents identify as Christian, a far cry from the 66% of respondents in the organization’s 1998 survey who identified as Christian and a 2-percentage-point drop from 2017.
