World Religion and World Christian trials

World Religion DatabaseTrial access to the BRILL’s World Religion Database and World Christian Database are currently available.

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.
