Figure 7.  Statistical development of the percentages of Christian and Muslim populations with respect to the total population of Latin America as a whole from 1900 to 2010 (WCD)

There is no line representing Islam in the above figure since the total percentage for that religion within the continent is less than 1% in all of Latin America. In Table 2 we see that the decline in total Christian percentage population is a slight 3%, and thus, no further division of the continent is examined. However, referring to the 1900 and 1975 maps in Figure 1, it is clear that some growth in Christianity, evidently among Protestants from the data in Figure 7, took place in Brazil and the north western area of South America.
