Selected worldwide adherents of religions

Non-Italic: Information by group. Some items are included in others, f.e. Umbanda in African Traditional & Diasporic. List also contains Secularism organizations.

These estimates and member statistics are taken from different sources, as given below. In some cases like f.e. Shabak people media work with different estimates, we could not prove, so we just list their width. REMID only makes estimates for religions and similar groups in Germany.
