In 2008 over 1,000 New Zealanders revealed their beliefs about various things in a Massey University study conducted as part of the International Social Survey Programme (ISSP). While New Zealanders had become increasingly secular over time, the majority still believed in life after death and heaven. Large portions of the population were also superstitious.
This is the most up-to-date data available, as the ISSP study of religion only takes place every 10 years.
