You’re Probably Not A Jedi: The Census Campaign And Why It Matters

YOU'RE PROBABLY NOT A JEDI: THE CENSUS CAMPAIGN AND WHY IT MATTERS

Bob Churchill, British Humanist Association

by Bob Churchill
When: Wednesday, March 16, 2011 8.00 – 11.00 PM
Where: The Head of Steam, 7 Lime Street, Liverpool

Bob Churchill will discuss the BHA’s Census Campaign, what the problem with the religion question on the Census is, why it matters in the long-run, and why you’re probably not a Jedi. Bob will also divulge the surprising reasons as to why the Office of National Statistics declined to make the question more accurate even though they knew how to do it – and it’s probably not what you think.

    Great Idea changing the date to a Wednesday. This allows me to go to a new meeting group on that Thursday. I’m checking out the local Astronomical Society. They meet on the 3rd Thursday of the month. However there are only two more before they shut down for the summer months until October.
