Fun with Facebook statistics

The Facebook UK Politics application generates some mildly diverting statistics, so here goes:

The gender split sees the Tories leading among men (36.9% vs Labour 30.5%), but the reverse among women 30.7% / 39.6%.

In terms of relationship status, the Tories lead among singles, 'in a relationship', and 'It's complicated'. The Red horde, oddly, leads among the married and the engaged. It is level pegging between the two for 'in an open relationship'. Greens are somewhat over-represented under that heading.

Religion throws up some figures that are predictable - Methodists veer Left, as do Jedis. Supposedly over a third of declared Facebook Rastafarians are Tory, which I doubt. Humanism and Paganism are big among Lib Dems. There are also rather a lot of SNP Buddhists - 28.6% of them. Mind you, 10% of Presbyterians support Sinn Fein?

"10% of Presbyterians support Sinn Fein"

And there is a consensus amongst scientisits on MMGW.

These stats are quite skewed because apparently around 80-90% of Facebook users are under 30 and that age group tends to have a larger proportion of Labour supporters than the general population. But they never vote. And when many of them grow up (start paying tax, mortgage etc) they don't support Labour any more.
