Okay, not quite sure what you're asking (percent of Christians, Americans, people in the world, etc.), but here we go. Christians (all Christians including Protestants, Catholics, Easter Orthodox): 2.1 billion (33% of the world) Muslims: 1.3 billion Atheists/Non-religious/etc.: 1.1 billion Hinduism: 900 million Chinese religions (Confuscionism, Daoism, etc.): 394 million Buddhism: 376 million Judaism: 14 million Of those 2.1 billion Christians Roman Catholic: 1.1-1.2 billion Orthodox: 240-250 million and Protestants are hard because no one is sure who counts as a Protestant and who doesn't. Do all non-Catholic/Orthodox count? Do Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Anglicans count? Personally, I adhere to the belief that if you're not Catholic or Orthodox and yet still Christian, you're Protestant unless you're church was around before the Catholic and Orthodox churches (you're probably protesting against something, right?). So by that logic we have: Protestants: 630 million Making Protestants about 30% of all Christians. Which therefore makes them about 9% of the total world population. However, in America Protestants make up over 50% of all Americans (not including Mormons) although the Catholic Church is still the biggest single Christian denomination in the US. The most up to date information I could find was from 2001, so some of these figures may have changed somewhat, but I'm still willing to be Protestants make up the majority of Americans, Catholics make up the majority of Christians, and Christians make up somewhere around a third of the world's population.
