Trial e-Resource - World Religion Database

We currently have an on-campus free trial of the World Religion Database which runs until 3 July 2012.

WRD contains detailed religious demographic statistics and sources on religious affiliation, for every country of the world.

It provides source material, including censuses and surveys, as well as best estimates for every religion, at multiple dates between 1900 to 2050.

It offers
:
  • population and religious adherents for every country and United Nations region
  • source material on religious affiliation (censuses and surveys)
  • breakdown of major religions into traditions
  • multiple data points to compare growth rates (1900, 1950, 1970, 2000, 2005, 2025, 2050)
  • global comparative figures for every religion
  • regular updates, including provincial breakdowns within countries
