Homogeneousness and evolution

Greece is a relatively homogeneous country in terms of religion and ethnic groups. Official statistics show that approximately 95% of Greeks are Orthodox Christian (out of a population of approximately 11 million). However, it is estimated that up to 10% of Greeks may have non-Orthodox beliefs. The religious and national homogeneousness is changing as a growing number of immigrants from different religious and ethnic backgrounds are settling in Greece. There are also a few religious minorities including Muslims, Catholics, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Protestants and Jews.

An analysis of religious belief and national belonging in Central and Eastern Europe (May 2017) is available on the Pew Research Center website (full report available as a pdf document).
