This following provides a brief overview of religious affiliation in Trafford in 2011.

Religious belief

Figure 1 shows the proportion of usual ward residents who reported that they had a religion in 2011. The proportion includes those who did not state whether they had a religion because the 2011 census question was voluntary. Hale Barns residents had the highest proportion of residents reporting a religion (80.5%) and Priory the lowest (65.9%). The proportion who didn't answer the religion question was broadly the same across the wards at around 6.3% of residents.
