Non-Christian groups

In recent years the population of England has become increasingly diverse in religious identity. Although the heritage is predominantly Christian, there are substantial numbers of Muslims (3.9 percent, 3.1 percent in 2010), Hindus (2 percent, 1.2 percent in 2010), Sikhs (0.9 percent, 0.3 percent in 2010), Jews (0.6 percent as in 2010) and Buddhists (0.3 percent, 0.4 percent in 2010).

In Scotland and Wales Muslims constitute the largest non-Christian group, but at only 1.3 percent (1 percent in 2010) of the population, their relative frequency is considerably lower than in England. Likewise the non-Christian groups are much smaller in Northern Ireland than in England.
