Australia is increasingly a secular nation. From census to census, the number of Australians who consider themselves religious has fallen with unerring consistency since the 1920s. Just between 2001 and 2011, the number of Australians considering themselves to be religious fell from 82.4% to 75.2% of the population. This was despite significant immigration over that period from regions with substantially higher levels of religious adherence. Overall, the decline of followers of traditional Christian faiths is outstripping growth of adherers of eastern religions.
