New database trial: World Religion Database

Posted September 29, 2016

The Library is currently subscribed to a new database trial: World Religion Database.

The World Religion Database (WRD) contains detailed statistics on religious affiliation for every country of the world. It provides source material, including censuses and surveys, as well as best estimates for every religion to offer a definitive picture of international religious demography. It offers best estimates at multiple dates for each of the world’s religions for the period 1900 to 2050.

As always, if this database is useful for your research, please leave a comment here or contact our electronic resources librarian.
