Top Ten Organized Religions of the World
Statistics of the world's religions are only very rough approximations. Aside from Christianity, few religions, if any, attempt to keep statistical records; and even Protestants and Catholics employ different methods of counting members.
NOTE: Numbers from mid-2004. This list includes only organized religions and excludes more loosely defined groups such as Chinese or African traditional religions.
