Diversification of the religious landscape

The religious landscape in Romania is characterised by a pronounced religious diversity. Thus, besides the predominant Orthodox religion, which represented 81.04% of the population in 2011 compared to 86,8% in 2002, Romania is also home to a large variety of religious minorities, including the Roman Catholic religion with 4.3% of the total population, Reformed Church 3%, the Pentecostalists with 1.8% and Greek Catholic Church 0,75% of the total population (2011 Census INS).

Neo-Protestant religious minorities evolved very little or are stagnating in 2011 compared to the previous census: Pentecostalists had increased from 1% in 1992 to 1.5% in 2002, then to 1.8% in 2011; Baptists from 0.5% in 1992 to 0.6% in 2002, then to 0.56% in 2011; Seventh-Day Adventists from 0.3% in 1992 to 0.43% in 2002, then to 0.4% in 2011 and Evangelical Christians had increased from 0.2% in 1992 to 0.21% in 2002 and 2011.
