Drawing on data from Australia’s 1996 and 2001 Census of Population and Housing, this paper enumerates and examines the distribution of Victoria’s population according to people’s religious identification. The number of both Christians and non-Christians increased over this five-year period, but Christians’ proportion of the Victorian population declined. Patterns of religious residential concentration have remained largely the same, but the degree of concentration has increased for Jews in Caulfield and Muslims in the northern suburbs.
