Data from the 1996 Census are examined at postcode level to determine whether there exist in Australia significant locations of religious residential concentration. No postcode was discovered to have more than sixty per cent of any religious group; no minority religious group was discovered to make up more than forty per cent of any postcode. Comparisons of 1986, 1991 and 1996 census data at the Statistical Local Area (SLA) level provide mixed evidence regarding the trends in religious residential concentrations. A variety of factors shape the formation of religious residential concentrations of which religion is only one. Copyright. Monash University and the author/s
