Statistics on Religions and Churches in the People’s Republic of China – Update for the Year 2020

Katharina Wenzel-Teuber

In this issue of our annual statistical update, we present, as always, some newly published studies. This time it is about “Western religion fever” in rural China, the “Chinese cultural identity” of religious adherents, the connection between religiosity and the willingness to donate, the development of Buddhist religious life in China and reasons why Chinese become Christians. We also bring figures on the individual religions from the year 2020 or – since new figures are not available for each religion every year – from previous years.

In order for the China-Zentrum to continue promoting encounters and exchange between the cultures and religions of the West and China, and to continue publishing the journal China heute as well as the e-journal Religions & Christianity in Today’s China, we are in need of financial support.
