[Insert anastrophe here]

What is the missing piece of the pie? And while you answer that, post the source of the data too :)

The force was with Prasad , varuns88 , teju , Ginkgo100 , manubhardwaj , Dibyo , Vish , duriel , BiGFooT , shashank and udupendra.

Answer: Jedi.

A movement was started in 2001 in many parts of the world urging people to choose “Jedi” as their religion when the government asked them what it was. And it appears that New Zealand had one of the highest Midichlorian infestations in their water supply.

    Missing text is Jedi. Some movement in random countries to get Jedi listed as a recognized religion. Data is from the census report of New Zealand or England or some other random country.

    The missed out part is Jedi or Jedi Knight.

    The source of this data comes from the 2001 census of English speaking countries and this particular chart is for New Zealand. Over 53,000 people listed themselves as Jedi in New Zealand’s 2001 census.

    Hilarious!!!


  4. “Jedi” is missing. 2001 Australian census – a massive practical joke on the government!

    The answer is Jedi.

    This is the Jedi census phenomenon, where people put forth Jedi as their religion. These particular figures are from the New Zealand census of 2001.

    Jedi , source : Jedi census phenomenon !


  15. Jedi!

    Apparently 1.5% of New Zelanders consider themselves as Jedi according to New Zealand’s 2001 census, making it the second largest religion in that country!

    But the New Zeland statics department treated the responses as “Answer understood, but will not be counted”
