The Pew-Templeton Global Religious Futures project analyzes religious change and its impact on societies around the world.
The Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life uses a range of social science methods, including public opinion surveys, demographic analysis and coding, to examine three related areas of global change:
Patterns in religious beliefs and practices, including how they shape people’s social values and political attitudes;
Trends in religious affiliation, including the current and projected size of the world’s major religious groups; and
Comparisons of restrictions on the practice of religion, including restrictions imposed by governments as well as social groups, organizations and individuals.
The Pew-Templeton Global Religious Futures project is jointly and generously funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts and the John Templeton Foundation.
