the percents only add up to 98.4, where is the other 1.6% Slash's snakepit 00:22, 25 November 2006 (UTC)
the percents add up to 92.8%, the remaining 7.2% is Atheist or Non Religious, but as it is not a precise figure ('cos it is produced by a subtraction of the other figures from 100%) I thought it was better to not add it in the article. --Checco 09:26, 25 November 2006 (UTC)
Consistency between Eurobarometer data and Christian sources
I am not a registered user, I just stumbled upon this article. I'd like to point out that, according to the Eurobarometer Poll data shown on this page, roughly 90% of Italian citizens believe in God or some kind of spirit or life force. On the other hand, denominational sources (i.e., the Annuario Pontificio or those listed in the references section) report that more than 91% of Italians belong to the Christian faith. That is, at least 600,000 Italians are non-believing Christians. Aside from any remarks about the percentage of non practicing Christians and the difference between the number of baptized citizens and that of believers, I guess that those data should be edited somehow to avoid bizarre inconsistencies. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 16:06, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
I don't see the problem: different polls almost always give different results. In this case the results are very similar and consistent with each other, thus it is not the case to worry about it. --Checco (talk) 16:24, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
