World Christian Database

Detailed examples and church membership

We have revamped the Detailed Examples home page by adding new queries that illustrate the breadth of information in the World Christian Database.

One example is Buddhist peoples outside Asia which shows the impact of emigration (sorting on mid-2005 reveals the largest as the Vietnamese of the USA). Another approach is Muslim Peoples of Southern Europe, a filter that spotlights Muslim peoples in a particular UN region.

Both of these examples can be adjusted by changing criteria (another religion or another region).

In addition, we have continued updating church membership figure for mid-2005 as published reports increasingly become available to replace projections from earlier years.
