Bible Gateway’s Most “Bible-Minded” Cities in the UK and Australia

Croydon, England and Richmond, Victoria rank #1 as Bible Gateway’s most “Bible-minded cities in the United Kingdom and Australia respectively for 2013.

In our previous posts—“What Are Bible Gateway’s Most “Bible-Minded” USA Cities?” and “Bible Gateway’s Most “Bible-Minded” Cities in Canada”—we assembled usage data from 2013 of visitors to BibleGateway.com that indicate Bible Gateway’s popularity in USA and Canadian cities while also adjusting for population. We’ve now done the same thing with visitor data from UK and Australian cities and compiled a list of the top 50 cities from each. Remember, our data show overall usage regardless of how the reader (visitor) feels about the Bible’s accuracy.

[UPDATE: Read our summary post What Does it Mean to be “Bible-minded”?]

The colors on the following maps indicate usage: dark blue are those cities where Bible Gateway is most popular, light blue are next, then light red, then dark red. The larger the size of the dot, the more relative pageviews occurred from that location on Bible Gateway (the Australia data is relative due to the size of pageviews per resident).

Here are the complete lists:
