Center for the Study of Global Christianity
Response to Pew Research Center's World Religions Projections Report
On April 2, 2015, the Pew Research Center released a new report, "The Future of World Religions, Population Growth Projections, 2010-2050." Researchers at the Center for the Study of Global Christianity have written a brief response on the differences on the projected number of Christians in 2050.

The Center for the Study of Global Christianity is constantly engaging in demographic research and updating statistics for the World Christian Database. In addition to these tasks, we are almost always engaged in several other projects, both major and minor. Please click here to see a list of our current public projects.
Throughout its history, the Center for the Study of Global Christianity has produced many world-class reference works including the recent Atlas of Global Christianity (Edinburgh University Press, 2009). Additionally, we also produce and maintain the World Christian Database (Brill) online, and regularly publish articles in journals and encyclopedias.
