British Religion in Numbers (BRIN) is an online centre for British data on religion. BRIN provides hard empirical evidence to underpin research into and intellectual debate about the key issues and trends affecting religion in Britain, past and present. It has four central features: a catalogue of British statistics on religion; a set of statistical time series; thematic commentaries on religious practice, identity and belief; and an up-to-date review and analysis of newly released reports and statistics. All of the digests, charts and commentaries are freely available to researchers and research users, including policy-makers, religious leaders, journalists and the public.
