World Christian Database

Updated to 2005

The core religious data of the World Christian Database has been updated from mid-2000 to mid-2005. This means that estimates for the number of religionists in every country of the world are now reconciled with the United Nations population projections for mid-2005. The update includes statistics on all Christian denominations and world religions, as well as trends between 2000 and 2005. In addition, the peoples and provinces databases have been updated to mid-2005. Cities will be updated in the coming weeks. Included in this update are new projections of religious adherents for 2025 and 2050.
