Iona Institute's latest poll

The Iona Institute have taken a poll to reveal the levels of religious knowledge among the general population of Northern Ireland, showing that results are lower than the poll conducted in the south earlier this year.

A few of the stats include:
  • 42% knowing how many gospels there are (52% of Catholics, 36% of Protestants)
  • 60% knew the name of the first book in the Bible (54% of Catholics, 68% of Protestants)
  • 83% knew where Jesus was born (84% of Catholics, 83% of Protestants)

There were lots of other questions asked. To see all the results have a look here
