Sources of data used in this section

There is in Sweden no official state registration of individual citizens religion. On the contrary, a special law prohibits the registration of any person’s religious or philosophical conviction as well as their race, ethnicity, or political views (SFS 1998:204).
Figures available from open sources concerning religious belonging and articipation are used in this section. They consist of the (Church of Sweden official statistics), and of the figures that are the base for the state Authority for Support to Faith Communities, (other faith Communities than the Church of Sweden). These latter figures are reported by the respective faith communities and consist of all the people that they estimate they serve by their activities. Therefore, these figures include members as well as non-members who take part in their activities.
