New e-Resource - World Religion Database

The World Religion Database is another valuable addition to the Library's extensive collection of research databases.

It contains detailed statistics on religious affiliation for every country in the world, and is the major source for providing a definitive picture of international religious demography. 

Both current and historical data is provided, as well as sophisticated forecasts of future developments. 

For each of the world’s religions, best estimates at multiple dates for the period 1900 to 2050, are provided.

World Religion Database also offers access to the censuses and surveys which underlie the figures in the database.

WRD is updated regularly with new sets of data as they become available, for example, with religious freedom information for all countries in the world.
