Religious Landscape of the Central African Republic

Religious conflict continues in the Central African Republic. The CAR sits near the “fault-line” between Christianity and Islam in Africa. According to Operation World (2010), approximately 76% of the population is Christian and 14% is Muslim.

This map displays the percent of province populations that are Christian, and one will notice the change from south to north. Within the CAR, the two most northern provinces are under 50% Christian, with the rest of the provinces between 50%-68% Christian, and the capital Bangui estimated to be 76% Christian (World Christian Database, 2014).
