Survey on Pagan Responses to the UK Census 2011

Vivianne Crowley is asking pagans to help her with some research by filling in a short questionnaire. She said:
"I’ve been invited by the British Sociological Association’s Sociology of Religion group to give a paper next month on Pagan responses to the UK Census 2011. 
"There is a big difference of course between the survey numbers and those quote for number of Pagans in the UK and I’m trying to tease out some of the reasons. One might be that numbers have been inflated of course. The other might be that Pagans for various reasons were under-reported. 
"I wonder if you’d be kind enough, if you completed the Census, to answer the survey by clicking this link. 
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/UK2011Census 
"All responses are anonymous. 
"I'd to get as many responses from different parts of the Pagan community as I can, so if there are any Pagan mailing lists/e-groups that you're involved with, it would be great if you could post the link."
This sounds like very useful research that could help pagans gain more recognition for our chosen spiritual path.
