Maps and charts

Buddhists and Hindus, 2010 

Source: Pew Research Center,


These maps have a key like the others to describe religions in 2010: the circles show numbers of adherents and the shading their proportion of the population in each country. Buddhists are mainly found in Asia, particularly in the East (representing over three-quarters of the population in Thailand and Myanmar), while Hindus are concentrated in India and Nepal. For both these religions, modest yet visible numbers show the Asian diasporas (North America, the Gulf, Australia/New-Zealand and South Africa).
