Photo: Facts and figures

Facts and figures: the ninth edition of The State of the World Atlas, published last month in paperback (New Internationalist, £14.99), suggests that, although the vast majority of the world's population professes a religious faith, more than 20 per cent of people in the former Soviet Union, China, North Korea, and Cuba profess none.

The atlas contains more than 100 thematic maps, and includes statistics on wealth, poverty, and inequality. It states that Christianity, if regarded as one religion, has more than half as many more adherents than Islam, and more than twice as many as Hinduism.
