Since 2001, people have been declaring their religion as ‘Jedi’ on official census campaigns. The upside to this is that it’s been encouraging more people to take part in official census campaigns. Barnes and Noble takes a look.
I wonder how many of these people are doing it as a way to have fun, how many are doing it as a gesture of protest against organized religions, and how many truly believe in The Force.
My guess is that the third camp is a tiny, tiny majority, but still, I would live to have numbers on that.
Also, I would be curious to know what other fictional religion people have declared in a census.
