    I'd give them a different colour, I think most people consider Anglicans and Methodists distinct branches of Christianity with the crux being that Anglicanism is especially tied to the Church of England whereas Methodism is not.

    Nice maps! The only thing I worry about is the U.S. Most places are majority Protestant, it's just that there's so many denominations that Catholics get the majority. Maybe if you could merge most mainline Protestant branches, excluding groups like Mormons but including all the other ones.

    I know that it doesn't really matter to most people if you're Methodist or Lutheran or Baptist or whatever, but it really does if you're one of those or Catholic. I just feel like the map showing all Catholic is misleading.

    IMG_2096.GIF One suggestion. Your map of Croatia shows a lot more orthodox than it should.
    Whoever made that map probably used data from an older census(1991).
    The ethnic composition has changed drastically since then and the Serbs are a majority in a very small areas now.

    Serbs being the only orthodox group that has a majority in any part of the country.
    Serbs are blue on the map.

    I know it's too late to change things, but those maps are all based on studies by the US Religion Census, whose most recent census data can be found here. The first map uses the 2010 data and is not done by denominational group like your map, but is done by individual denomination (e.g. united Methodists and free Methodists are separated). The second map combines denominations but is unfortunately outdated, using data from 2000. The third map uses Canadian data from an unknown source. There is currently no map that would show the data you are looking for.

    I used this https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/...Croatia#/media/File:Croatia-Religion-2001.png as source of my data for Croatia. It is from 2001, and as Oluja was 1995 I was also surprised of the large Serb population in Krajina.
    Both may be right, by the way. My source used data by settlements, your by municipalities. What could be the case is that there are handful of settlements in he municpality, with most of them small, populated by serbs, while the town itself has a larger population than the other settlements put together, and a Croat majority

    My methodology:
    1. First, check the borders of Native American reservations, colour in their colour
    2. Second add areas where Native American languages spoken, according to Muturzikin, and colour as Native American Faiths.
    3. Third, check areas from the third map which are majority irreligious. Colour in grey.
    4. Use the first map as primary source.
    5. Wherever the first map says "Other", check the second map.
    6. If no definite status could be found, compare with this http://www.patheos.com/blogs/blackw...am-map-of-protestant-denominations-in-the-us/

    What you say may very well be true. But these two maps seem to be using the same administrative divisions while having drastically different results.
    I know there's been some drama about many people reporting that they live here to get benefits or other stuff while they actually don't.
    I think that the methodology has been changed a lot in the newest census.

    This map also shows you Serbs(orthodox) in Croatia but only red and dark red are places with a majority. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b9/Serbs_in_Croatia.jpg

    Many Native American reservations are plurality-Catholic or even majority-Catholic, due to extensive missionary work there.
