Religions in Australia

Prompted by Mumble, here are some maps of the most common religion in each federal electorate. The first set of maps give the most common response; there are many different versions of Christianity, and the numbers are such that in every case, the "leader" is either Catholic, Anglican, or No Religion. The second set of maps excludes all types of Christianity and No Religion.

In all electorates, there is a sizeable minority who don't answer this question (between 5% and 16%), so the percentages shown are likely to be underestimates.

Data is from the 2011 Census, via TableBuilder, and I have used the electorate shapefile from the ABS (CED_2011_AUST.shp) to define the boundaries. The ABS's version of the electorates isn't quite the true version from the Electoral Commission, but since the ABS uses their own boundaries for the Census data, it makes sense to use these wrong boundaries.
