The table above is compiled from the relevant Wikipedia pages listing Religions by Country. Although figures are an approximation there are many sources. Please see individual pages (Linked in Table) for details.

The numbers of adherents to organised religions in the world is difficult to accurately ascertain. Therefore figures and estimates are included from multiple sources to show the reader the problem in compiling such statistics.

Notes
  • These figures may incorporate populations of secular/nominal adherents as well as syncretist worshipers, although the concept of syncretism is disputed by some.
  • Nonreligious includes agnostic, atheist, secular humanist, and people answering 'none' or no religious preference. Half of this group is theistic but nonreligious.[8]
  • For Eastern religions such as Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, Shinto or animism etc., people often have religions which are a mix of belief systems. This leads to the unusually large uncertainty in the calculations for Buddhism. The lower number of approximately 400 million represents traditional Buddhists (have taken refuge in the Three Jewels, those following all of the precepts of Buddhisim laid down by the Buddha,) whereas the larger number of 1.5 billion includes "natural Buddhists" (as well as secular/nominal Buddhists), lacking specific ceremony, as long as they do not profess belief in another religion. Main article: Buddhism by country.[9][10]
  • It is hard to accurately report the actual number of adherents of Judaism as there are Jews that do not practice the religion that may be under the secular/irreligious category even though they are fully Jewish.
  • Chinese traditional religion is described as "the common religion of the majority Chinese culture: a combination of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism, as well as the traditional non-scriptural/local practices and beliefs."
  • Juche is not generally considered a religion, as it is a political belief system; some sources call it a 'political religion'.

Remarks: Although Islam is the state religion of most Middle Eastern countries,this list excludes Saudi Arabia where 100% of national citizens are Muslims,[42] because there is a substantial number of non-Muslim residents there (mostly Hindu and Christian; as well as Buddhist, Sikh and Jewish minorities). So the total Muslim population in Saudi Arabia is around 25 million (20 million native Saudi citizens with 1.5 million Bangladeshis, 1 million Pakistanis, 1 million Egyptians, 600,000 Indonesians, 250,000 Palestinians, and significant Muslim numbers among 1.6 million Indians, 150,000 Lebanese, as well as 100,000 Eritreans) or only about 90% of the total population.[43]

  13.  Republic of China (Taiwan)35.1-75% ("Triple religion", Christian 4%, other 2%)
  14.  Singapore 33-44%[70] ("Triple religion" 33% Buddhist, 11% Taoist)

  19.  Nepal 11.4% (Hindu 80.6%, Tibetian Buddhist, Muslim 4%, other 4%)

Remarks: "Triple religion" (or "Chinese-Mahayana Buddhism" or "Far East Asian Buddhism") is the mixture of Mahayana Buddhism, with Taoism and Confucianism. Because officially Communist governments that often forcibly suppressed religious expressions still rule a number of traditionally Buddhist countries, and because Buddhists often practice other traditional East Asian religions, the figures could be much higher in these regions. Mahayana Buddhism in Far East Asian countries has a very wide meaning. That is why in such countries as China, Japan, Vietnam, North and South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore, the three religions of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism are often all considered at once. This is referred to as a "Triple religion", with Gautama Buddha in the center, Laozi in the left, and Confucius in the right. In some regions, such as Japan, belief systems vary with differing emphasis on Shintoism, as well as Ancestor Worship. As such, the Buddhist population is difficult to gauge exactly, but is often nominal. The lesser percentage given is a number of Buddhists who have taken the formal step of going for refuge. And the wider percentage given are informal/nominal adherents of combined Buddhism with its related religions.[73][74][75][76][77][78][79][80] See Buddhism by country and Irreligion.

  Sikhism

Countries with the greatest proportion of Sikhs:

  1.  India 2.3%
  2.  United Kingdom 1.2%[99][100]
  3.  Canada 0.9%[101]
  4.  Malaysia 0.5%[102]
  5.  Fiji 0.3%[103]
  6.  Singapore 0.3%[104][105]
  7.  United States 0.2%[106][107]
  8.  New Zealand 0.2%[108]
  9.  Australia 0.1%[109][110]
  10.  Italy 0.1%[111]

The Sikh homeland is the Punjab state, in India, where today Sikhs make up approximately 59% of the population. This is the only place where Sikhs are in the majority. Sikhs have emigrated to countries all over the world - especially to English-speaking and East Asian nations. In doing so they have retained, to an unusually high degree, their distinctive cultural and religious identity. Sikhs are not ubiquitous worldwide in the way that adherents of larger world religions are, and they remain primarily an ethnic religion. But they can be found in many international cities and have become an especially strong religious presence in the United Kingdom and Canada.[112]

  Taoists/Confucianists/Chinese traditional religionists

As a spiritual practice, Taoism has made fewer inroads in the West than Buddhism and Hinduism. Despite the popularity of its great classics the I Ching and the Tao Te Ching, the specific practices of Taoism have not been promulgated in America with much success;[113] these religions are not ubiquitous worldwide in the way that adherents of larger world religions are, and they remain primarily an ethnic religion. Nonetheless, Taoist ideas and symbols such as Taijitu have become popular throughout the world through Tai Chi Chuan, Qigong, and various martial arts.[114]

  1.  Republic of China (Taiwan) 33-80%[115]
  2.  People's Republic of China 30%[116]
  3.  Hong Kong 28%[60]
  4.  Macau 13.9%[69]
  5.  Singapore 8.5%[117]
  6.  Malaysia 2.6%[53]
  7.  South Korea 0.2-1%[118]
  8.  Vietnam
  9.  Philippines 0.01-0.05%

The Chinese traditional religion has 184,000 believers in Latin America, 250,000 believers in Europe, and 839,000 believers in North America as of 1998.[119][120]

  Jainism

  1.  India 0.5%
  2.  Suriname 0.3%
  3.  Fiji 0.2%
  4.  Kenya 0.2%
  5.  Réunion 0.1%[121]

  Mormonism

The Deseret Morning News' LDS Church Almanac gives information on historical membership records of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Church's reported membership was roughly 13,824,000 at the start of 2010.

  Spiritism

  1.  Cuba 10.30%
  2.  Jamaica 10.2%
  3.  Brazil 4.8%
  4.  Suriname 3.6%
  5.  Haiti 2.7%
  6.  Dominican Republic 2.2%

Note that all these estimates come from a single source. However, that one source could at least point us out to the countries that have a decent community of Spiritists

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
