Religions by country

Religion Portal    

This article gives an overview about religion by country. Note that the Abrahamic religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, will show dual figures; those are the percentage of people who believe in God and the percentage of nominal adherents who celebrate traditional religious holidays although not professing belief in God: Cultural Jews and Cultural Christians as found mainly in Western Europe and North America, and Cultural Muslims in Turkey and the Balkans. The percentage of Buddhists also show common numbers (nominal Buddhists) with some Eastern religions such as Taoism, Confucianism, Shinto, Chinese folk religion and various sorts of animism; Mahayana Buddhism is the more popular than others.[1][2][3] Another definition is the percentage of people who have taken the Refuge (= registered). (See Buddhism by country.) Buddhism has harmonized with many different national cultures as a traditional faith in many Asian countries rather than a separate religion.
