The World Religion Database (WRD) contains detailed statistics on religious affiliation for every country in the world. It is the major source to render a definitive picture of international religious demography. The WRD provides both current and historical data, as well as sophisticated forecasts of future developments.
The World Christian Database a companion database to the WRD. Their focus is different (the WCD deals solely with Christian denominations; the WRD with all religious affiliations), but they provide the same demographic and statistical data.
