Distribution of Catholicism in Europe.

Most of the figures are taken from the CIA Factbook.[1]

Please note that not all figures published in the CIA Factbook are properly sourced. The CIA fact figures listed are higher than other sources. As an example, for Europe's largest country — Germany — the German Catholic Church reports 10 percentage points fewer Catholics than the CIA factbook lists. Similarly, the Dutch Catholic Church reports 5 percentage points fewer than the CIA factbook does (26 versus 31).

According to the CIA Factbook, the five countries with the largest number of Catholics are Brazil, Mexico, Philippines, United States and Italy. The country with the largest Catholic percentage of the population is Vatican City, at 100%. The country with the second largest Catholic percentage of the population is Malta, at 95.34%.

According to the Census of the 2010 Annuario Pontificio (Pontifical Yearbook), the number of Roman Catholics of the world is about 1.166 billion at the end of 2008 (end of 2007: about 1.147 billion).
