The Future of World Religions

“Nones” are on the rise in the United States, where the share of the population that does not identify with any religion has been increasing rapidly. But, worldwide, the ranks of the unaffiliated are shrinking. If current global trends continue, the number of Muslims will nearly equal the number of Christians by 2050, perhaps for the first time in history. The Pew Research Center’s Alan Cooperman looks at the future of global religions — which ones are growing, which ones are shrinking, and why it matters.
