Statistics on Religions and Churches in the People’s Republic of China and in Singapore – Update for the Year 2021

Katharina Wenzel-Teuber

This year our annual statistical update covers the results of a survey on the response to different Bible translations among Catholics in Mainland China. The subject is topical because religious communities are currently being asked to revise the translations of their sacred scriptures in the context of the government’s policy of “Sinicization.” In addition, new data are presented on the religions in multi-ethnic Singapore, where the population is 74.3% ethnic Chinese. The analysis of the results of the last population census of 2020 shows an increase in the number of people in Singapore’s population who have no religion. Both topics will be dealt with at the end of this statistical update.
