Sub-Saharan Africa Religion Survey, 2010, Data Tables

Key findings from more than 25,000 face-to-face interviews conducted in early 2009 revealed that very few people in sub-Saharan Africa are not religiously affiliated. The vast majority belongs to either Islam or Christianity while continuing to believe in witchcraft, evil spirits, sacrifices to ancestors, reincarnation and other elements of traditional African religions. The Association of Religion Data Archives, which stores and makes publicly available a wide range of data sets from high-quality surveys, has stored the study’s data table on its website. To explore the original questions and response rates, access the table on ARDA. The full 330-page report on the study is available from the Pew Forum’s website. Also see an article exploring Islam and Christianity in sub-Saharan Africa.
