Politically motivated merger over the 2% threshold (no excuse)Edit

On the main chart you have "No religion (5.1%)".
You merge the consciously atheist with the religiously indifferent or irreligious.
Then merge both Catholics and Protestants under Christianity!

Mergers are problematic!
5.1% is a big number enough to become analyzed!
There is no excuse for this merger!

We only merge related ideas under 2%.

Any other merger serves as a political distortion of facts.

For example, me, I found extremely blasphemous that the Christian god is a person, postulated by persons, within a Universe almost void of persons.

I am an atheist, not generically irreligious.

If you don't respect me, you shouldn't respect also the Catholics and the Protestants and merge them under Christianity.

Ok. Some statisticians politically push their agenda, but they consciously do so.

We have to mention it.

Misleading Census dataEdit

If you go to the source file for the 2017 Census (the PDF file), you will notice that it doesn't mention those who answered "don't know" to the question over their religious identification. If you go over to National Institute of Statistics and Informatics and filter for the category "Preguntas de vivienda > Religión que proefesa", you will see that there are 6 185 493 people whose answers weren't counted.

If i didn't mess up the data, then an accurate pie chart would look like the one on the left-hand side, but it can be summarized as it it in the pie chart located in the right-hand side. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eyemeneney (talkcontribs) 10:10, 2 January 2022 (UTC)

Religion in Peru 2017 Census[1]

  Roman Catholic (60.02%)
  Evangelical (11.11%)
  Jehovah's Witness (0.59%)
  Mormon (0.38%)
  Unaffiliated (4.09%)
  Other (0.32%)
  Undeclared/no answer (21.05%)

Religion in Peru 2017 Census[2]

  Roman Catholic (60.0%)
  Other Christian[a] (14.5%)
  Unaffiliated (4.09%)
  Other (0.32%)
  Undeclared/no answer (21.1%)
I'm taking a look at the data. I think the 6,185,493 people are those who are under 12 and who were not asked the question hence "no aplica" not applicable (I checked the question by age and no one under 12 was listed). I suspect that is why the question is marked "12a+". --Erp (talk) 01:22, 3 January 2022 (UTC)
