Religion is the most pervasive and influential factor in shaping our society and politics, but it’s also the most difficult to quantify.
It’s a topic of immense cultural and political importance, so it’s worth looking at its relative contributions to our understanding of the world, and how they could be more widely shared.
Religion’s impact in the world can be gauged by a number of metrics, and the question of how we measure it has become increasingly complex.
We now have tools to measure the impact of religion on society in a variety of ways.
The latest data from the World Values Survey, released on Wednesday, offers a glimpse of how religion’s impact on the world is changing over time.
Religion in America In America, religion is the second-largest source of income for the bottom 50 percent of households.
The number of American adults who attend church regularly has grown dramatically in the last century, from 1.6 percent of the population in 1900 to more than 10 percent today.
In 2017, that number reached nearly 16 percent of all American households.
More than half of all Americans are unaffiliated with a particular religion, with more than a quarter of Americans saying they do not have any religious affiliation.
But the world’s biggest religions—Islam and Christianity—continue to be the top-ranked source of global income.
As a percentage of GDP, the two faiths account for more than half the world total of about $10 trillion in 2017, and more than two-thirds of the global religious population is unaffiliated.
That makes the two religions by far the largest sources of global economic activity.
But these religions are far from the only religious groups making significant contributions to the world.
Buddhism and Hinduism are among the world’ biggest religions.
Buddhists have a global economic footprint of $2.2 trillion, and Hindus have $3.3 trillion in GDP.
In both groups, religion plays a prominent role in daily life.
Buddhistic leaders have long preached the importance of mindfulness and compassion in daily living, and their communities often offer prayer services.
But they’re also active in humanitarian work, and they’re increasingly seen as an ally in the fight against pandemics and natural disasters.
In contrast, Hinduism is known for its emphasis on caste and religion.
While there are currently no official statistics on how many Hindus are in the United States, India’s Hindu population, as a whole, is estimated to be about 3.4 million, or nearly 3 percent of India’s total population.
The country’s largest religion, Buddhism, has an estimated 3.3 million adherents.
Buddhist leaders have also been a prominent force in India’s social movements.
In India, many Buddhist monks and nuns have been active in political activism and civil disobedience in recent decades.
And Buddhist activists have often called for a more equitable society, and a shift away from the caste system.
In addition to providing a large source of international economic and social impact, Buddhism has been a global symbol of social justice and equality, and its adherents have been seen as a force for social and economic reform.
In America Buddhists are the second most common religious group to have a household income of $50,000 or less, according to the United Nations.
A recent survey by the Pew Research Center found that more than one-third of American Buddhists say they are unaffiliate with a religion.
In recent years, Buddhists in the U.S. have become increasingly vocal about their faith’s role in their lives and their place in the larger society.
While many Buddhists identify as nonreligious, they’re by no means the only people to do so.
According to a 2017 Pew Research survey, an estimated 40 percent of U.K. Buddhist are unaffiliationists.
According a 2016 survey conducted by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, the global Buddhist population is estimated at about 3 million people.
While Buddhists may be the most prominent religious group in the US, there are other groups in the developing world who have embraced Buddhism’s social and political values.
In the Philippines, Buddhist activists are increasingly embracing social and humanitarian causes.
In 2016, a survey by Catholic University’s Center for Religion Studies showed that about 40 percent were unaffiliated, and 40 percent reported having engaged in social and social-economic activity in the past year.
A new study released in 2017 by the New Zealand-based New Zealand Humanist Society found that nearly three-quarters of New Zealanders are Buddhist.
And a survey conducted in New Zealand by the Anglican Church in 2018 found that half of respondents said they were unaffiliationist.
In Indonesia, Buddhism is a growing global religion with about a million adherents worldwide.
While the world may be a more secular country today than it was a generation ago, Buddhism remains the second largest religion in Indonesia.
Buddhism is the largest religion to have more than $100 billion in global income, and about $4 trillion in global GDP.
The global Buddhist religion is also the second biggest source of economic activity worldwide. In
