List: Top 10 Countries With Highest Proportion of Atheists / Agnostics

Date: 2004

Source: P Zuckerman - "Atheism: Contemporary Rates and Patterns", The Cambridge Companion to Atheism, ed. by Michael Martin, Cambridge University Press.

Notes: The estimates of the number of atheists in North Korea, China and Cuba were noted as unreliable since the people in these nations live under Communist governments which traditionally suppress religious freedom and officially endorse atheism.
