Mapped: The World’s Major Religions

Major Religions:- It is quite common for people to choose based on religion or spiritual tradition. It may be argued that there are important differences between these groups, and it is, therefore, useful to classify them into various groups.

This theory began in the 18th century to recognize the relative levels of civility in different societies, but this practice has since fallen into disrepute in many contemporary cultures. This whole idea is based on the theory of semantics, which suggests a fundamental difference between the way we think and how we write. The authors argue that while not proven, this theory has been conclusively proved by modern science to be true. With this in mind, they also argue that there are ways in which social behavior can be quantified and discussed through the use of data collected from numerous independent laboratories. Throughout the paper, we will focus on the scientific method and its relationship to quantitative social behavior.


Religious Composition of Countries

In the last few decades, Christianity has experienced a great deal of decline. The world has become increasingly more secular in the last few decades.

Our study has shown that religion remains extremely important for many people, and 84% of the world’s population identifies with a religious group. People from different religious groups face many problems in life, including discrimination by their fellow citizens, a lack of national identity and belonging, and discrimination based on nationality and ethnicity.

Our research shows that Baha’is and other religious groups are the fastest-growing in America.

With the help of data from the Pew Research Center, we break down the religious composition of the major religions in countries worldwide.

Religious Makeup of the World by Major Religions

It is a fact that some people consider all religions the same. Religion is a set of beliefs, dogmas, and practices. They are based on the existence of God or gods and their relationship with humankind. There are many different types of beliefs in different religions, but they have common features such as belief in supernatural powers and spirituality. Many religions are difficult to categorize or tell apart for those not intimately familiar with their doctrine.

We have organized the world’s religions into seven major categories, comprising five major religions (Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Judaism), one category that broadly reflects religion but does not include any specific religion. These categories are based on the religious practices observed by people who belong to those religions.

According to the Pew Research Center, Christians make up 31 percent of the global population, while Muslims are 25 percent, and Jews are 8.7 percent. With the advance in technology, Christianity has become the most popular religion globally. Christianity is also one of the largest commercially successful religions in history and serves as a major cultural influence on other religions in different parts of the world.


Christianity has a rich history and several diverse beliefs. Its followers believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who was born by the Virgin Mary. The belief in Jesus Christ is known as Christianity, and its followers call themselves Christians.

The Christian population in the United States is growing, as is the Christian faithful, and many attributes this growth to the country’s Christian roots. For thousands of years, the United States has been a beacon of faith and religion, but America was never a purely religious nation.

In 1960 less than 0.5% of the population was Christian, and by 2000, nearly 90% of the population was Christian. Today, Brazil and Mexico have more Christians than any other country globally.

Christianity has historically spread around the globe, and today it remains a geographically widespread religion.

Over the past century, it has become less concentrated in Europe while becoming more evenly distributed throughout the Americas, sub-Saharan Africa, and the Asia-Pacific region.


Even though it’s the predominant religion of countries in the Middle East and Northern Africa, by sheer number, countries in Asia have the highest percentage of practicing Muslims in the world.

It may surprise you to know that 14.2% of Indians are Muslim. As a result, the country is home to one of the world’s largest Muslim populations, surpassed only by Indonesia.

Islam is also the world’s fastest-growing major religion. The number of Muslims is expected to increase by 70%, from 1.8 billion in 2015 to nearly 3 billion in 2060. They have the youngest median age, at 24, which also helps this population growth.


While Jews historically have been found all around the globe, Judaism is highly geographically concentrated today. More than four-fifths of all Jews live in just two countries: the United States and Israel, and Israel is the only country with a Jewish majority, with 76% of the population being practicing Jews.


Hinduism is the third-largest religion worldwide, with approximately 1.2 billion Hindus. Interestingly, however,

Hinduism is the dominant religion in only three countries, India with 79%, Nepal with 80%, and Mauritius with 48%. Although Hinduism is rarely a country’s primary religion, it still enjoys a global presence. Many regions around the world support significant populations of Hindus, including the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, North America, and South America.
