The question should be asked of the LT reporters! Simple geographical knowledge would be a good start.

lot of people in my area have lied about their religion.

64% Christian? They're certainly not practicing Christians. Maybe they're people who say they believe in God just in case?

Apparently 43% of households in Sudell do not have a car or a van. I find that figure difficult to believe. Unless they are including all the empty houses.
