Atheist discrimination by country – Population

Atheist discrimination by population
Atheist discrimination by population (showing countries with incomplete data)
Atheist discrimination by population (only countries with complete data)

These charts are generated from the information in the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU) report on state discrimination against atheists, humanists, and the non-religious.

The report gives a score to countries according to the worst criteria the country satisfies. In some situations the data for a country is incomplete, meaning the country's score may be better than it should be. That is why there are three charts: one showing all scores as given in the report, one highlighting the countries with incomplete data, and one showing only the scores from countries with no missing data.

Population estimates were taken from Wikipedia.
