Stop the Census Asking for Under 16 Year Olds' Religion

In the census usualy filled out by the parents of under 18 year olds who may put the religion of the household or community rather than the child.

At 16 a person may have a better idea of their religion and ask what to put on the census rather than let their parent chose.

These options would scew the results and make it seem that religion is in decline and use it as a scapegoat when it is actualy just assumptions made in the household.
