Australia is a secular country with freedom of religion. Since 1971 there has been an increase from 5% of the population identifying having no religion increasing to 30% of the population in 2016. This number is expected to rise as perceptions of the Church continue to worsen. The majority of those picking no religion is due to the rise of evidence-based approach and trusting science. Of the 52% of population still identifying as Christian only 7% say they are extremely involved. But despite a drop in those identifying as Christian, there has been a rise of those who consider themselves spiritual but not religious. With 55% of the population talking about spirituality or religion at least occasionally. Australians are still interested in being spiritual but not with the title of following a religion.
