Jedi - the New Religion

In this resource from stats4schools, students are asked if they believe in 'the Force'. One of the questions on the 2001 census asked people about their religion. Some people did put Jedi as a response on their census form and the Office for National Statistics have released this data. Students investigate this data by sorting it, making good inferences and justifying conclusions. Students will may also learn to appreciate the effects of the media on people’s decisions and choices.
