Peoples research

As people groups change so does the country’s religious makeup.

Changes to the proportion of particular ethnic or language groups within a country, through migration or through varying birth rates and rates of death, all contribute, people-group by people-group, to changes in the religious makeup of a country.

Quite apart from tracking the conversion of individuals to different religions and hence changing religious affiliation within a people group, these demographic changes of peoples between countries are constantly under review in the WCD research process.

This quarter the results of primarly people-group oriented reseach in countries up to the letter ‘J’ have led to widespread and often subtle edits in countries all over the world.

The research process continues.
