This study by the Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion & Public Life that covers 198 countries, representing more than 99.5% of the world's population. Based on the incidents of religious violence or intolerance from mid-2006 to mid-2008, it finds that about one-third of the countries in the world have high or very high restrictions on religion, representing nearly 70% of the world's 6.8 billion people. It is intended to revise on an annual basis to be able to chart changes and trends for single countries and regions over time.
