Declining Interest

As the world becomes more digitized, data provides a snap-shot of global interest and priorities. When considering global religions, the interest in Christianity, both in digital and physical print, is declining. Islam has seen a steady growth of interest in print, now nearly matching Christian publications, and surpassing digital search interest.

Digital interest in Christianity is meager compared to sex, money, and entertainment.

Overall, religion is not the current global focus, as reflected in digital search volume. Topics like Christianity and Jesus are a minority of searches compared to terms like ‘porn, movies, football, and, money.’
