Description
  • Abstract

    The data at hand is a follow-up study of the study ZA8682 on population structure and population movement (i.e.: age-structure, gender, family status, amount of birth, amount of death). The present study (ZA8683) deals with the religious affiliation of North Rhine-Westphalia´s population. The statistics are reported for the entire territory of North Rhine-Westphalia (=NRW), for NRW´s counties and their urban districts, independent towns (county boroughs) and rural districts for a period of about 120 years. The present study (ZA8683) deals with the religious affiliation of North Rhine-Westphalia´s population. Caused by the extensive changes of territories during the investigated period of 120 years the annotations are particularly important. Remarks of changing borders are of considerable extent and therefore are available via the downloadable PDF-Document, offered in the online-database histat (https://histat.gesis.org/histat/).
