The final number of 'Jedi Knights' has not been confirmed yet as only about 95% of the census forms have been returned. As you could probably imagine, the Home Office is none too pleased. Apparently though, you can't get fined for lying about your religion in the census."
Actually, according to the story, this gives the Jedi way no more official status than Plumbing would have if everyone put that down.
