I've used this map for years with my students in world religions class, but I am more and more disappointed. First, it's time for an update to the numbers. I would suggest using data from the Pew Research Center. Additionally, Ethiopia is coded incorrectly. It is not majority Muslim but Christian. Also, China and Japan are majority Buddhist but mostly non-religious. You should add non-religious as a category. Also, South Sudan needs to be put on the map. Finally, I question some of the coding for indigenous traditions. I will be taking this map down and replacing it with a map provided by PBS. As the need for religious literacy grows and grows, we need accurate information to display in our classrooms.
