It IS recognised on the official UK statistics website:
But only at the bottom of religeon page:
The chart of non-Christian religions excludes Christians, people who had no religion and those who did not state their religion.
No religion includes people who ticked 'None' at the religion question plus those who wrote in Jedi Knight, Agnostic, Atheist and Heathen and those who ticked 'Other' but did not write in any religion.
So the Jedi are part of the 15% (8.5M) people who voluntairily put that they had NO religeon.
So: Obi wan k'NO by

Okay so I admit I did write Jedi as my religion. I guess I figured it wouldn't do any harm. I have no religion, I am a scientist. I was pleased to see that so many others did the same as me, it was a great hoax.

There's actually more to this than first meets the eye to somebody outside the UK, particularly the USA where secularism is enshrined in the constitution.
Believe it or not, the anglican church in the UK is "established", meaning that it forms part of government; there are 21 bishops in the upper house of our parliament. With decreasing church attendance and increases in other religions, particularly islam, this situation is clearly unsustainable. Many of us want to see it replaced with a secular state (ideally a republic but that's another matter), but the religious nutters in New Labour would like to see some kind of mish-mash solution with different religions holding special privileges. The census question on religion was the first step in testing the waters. Entering "Jedi" was a neat way of showing up the ludicrousness of the concept of an "official" religion.
