Geographic distribution of major world religions
Based on the proportional world population map Carrie created, she took it a step further by incorporating data from the World Religion Database to show geographic trends across the continents (2010 figures).
In 2019, this map/infographic was discovered online by Frank Jacobs of Strange Maps fame, who stated that “This is the best, simplest map of world religions ever.”
Following the enthusiastic response to the articles, Carrie developed a Data Atlas of the World where she has expanded these maps into a series available for purchase.
