Chapter Summary

This chapter contains a list of general sources that provide bibliographical information for sources used to inform estimates of the size of religious populations in every country of the world made by the Pew Research Center. Most data were acquired directly from the organizations that collected them, but in some cases data were obtained from data archives. The list of archives from which Pew Research obtained data appears after the general sources. The subsequent list of sources by country provides abbreviated bibliographical information identifying the primary sources used as the basis for estimating the size of each of the eight religious traditions identified by Pew. In some cases, sources used to estimate the age structure of religious groups were different from the sources used for a country's religious composition.

Keywords: data archives; Pew Research Center; religious groups
