Minority religions including future projections for Northern Africa and Western Asia

Population estimates and future projections for minority religions in Northern Africa and Western Asia (including the Middle East), have been updated and re-reconciled with UN population data for each country.

The update includes revisions to the denominational database, particularly the 2015 estimates, as well as to the religious percentages of people groups in 2015 in light of migration reports documenting the refugee situation from zones of crisis.

Flowing from this, future projections for the years 2020-2050 for Christianity and other minor religions in each country have also been revised.
